Resource selection and space use of the critically endangered Tuamotu Kingfisher (Todiramphus gambieri)
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
I investigated the ecological requirements of the critically endangered Tuamotu Kingfisher (Todiramphus gambieri), with the intent to provide management recommendations that could help prevent its extinction. The species ...
Wildlife response to spatial and temporal changes in forest habitat
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
A common goal in land-management planning is to describe the relationship between management actions, vegetation and wildlife habitat conditions for large landscapes. Achieving this goal can be challenging because ecological ...
Winter bird densities and eastern wood-pewee breeding demography across a savanna-woodland-forest gradient in the Missouri Ozarks
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
and woodland is needed to inform management. Our objective was to determine densities of common winter migrants and resident birds in savannas, woodlands, and non-managed forests in the Missouri Ozark Highlands. We estimated detection probabilities...
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 ...
Impacts of suspended and deposited sediment on benthic invertebrates and fishes in a Missouri Ozark stream
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
Sediment is suspected in the decline of sensitive-aquatic organisms in the Osage River basin of Missouri. In this study, I monitored sediment dynamics and evaluated corresponding linkages with benthic invertebrate and fish assemblages as it related...
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...
