Distribution Model for Fishers in the Northern US Rocky Mountains
Project Lead:Schwartz, Mike
Affiliation:US Fish and Wildlife Service & US Forest Service
The results of this proposed project would provide the first comprehensive identification of fisher distribution in the northern Rocky Mountains, which may serve as a baseline for identifying population trends and changes in distribution over time.
Deliverables: (Due Date)
A species distribution model will be developed in four phases:
- Compile Distribution Data (7/10)
- Species Distribution Data (10/10)
- Biological Link (1/11)
- Climate Change Model (8/11)
At the completion of phases 2 and 3, the data would be made available to the USFWS in a report form that includes an explanation of the source data, methods used, interpretations and conclusions. At the completion of phase 4 (by August 1, 2011), a professional quality report incorporating all four phases of the project, suitable for peer-reviewed publication, will be delivered to the USFWS.
