Multi-scale factors influencing detection, site occupancy and resource use by foraging bats in the Ozark Highlands of Missouri
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
Conservation of bat populations requires understanding the associations between bats and their use of resources. We used maximum likelihood to estimate probability of site occupancy using acoustic data for ten species of ...
Use of main channel and shallow-water habitat by larval fishes in the lower Missouri River
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
I developed a series of research objectives organized in a spatial hierarchy to characterize larval fish nursery habitat within the lower Missouri River. Native carpsucker spp./buffalo spp. (Carpiodes spp./Ictiobus spp.) and chub spp. (Macrhybopsis...
Development and validation of standardized sampling protocols for assessing freshwater mussel populations in Missouri
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
step in assessing populations. We surveyed 14 sites in the Meramec River Basin in East-central Missouri to determine the effectiveness of visual sampling methods and to determine the effects of habitat variability on the effectiveness of these methods...
Nutrients, chlorophyll and bacterial fecal indicators in coves and open water areas of Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri
