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...
Maternity roost selection of Indiana bats (myotis sodalis) and occupancy of two threatened myotine bat species on national wildlife refuges in northern Missouri
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2020)
maternity habitat characteristics of the endangered Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis) in northern Missouri to identify factors that drive selection and 2) identify local- and landscape-scale habitat characteristics associated with occupancy of M. sodalis and M...
Evaluation and development of black-footed ferret resource selection models
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
Resource selection function (RSF) and utilization function (RUF) models aid in evaluating habitat suitability and investigating hypothesized mechanisms of space use of wildlife. We monitored postbreeding resource selection ...
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 ...
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...
