Spatial and Age-Structured Population Model of the American Crocodile for Comparisons of CERP Restoration Alternatives
Entry ID: USGS_SOFIA_pop_model_am-croc

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: To adequately understand crocodile populations and model population growth, existing data must be assembled and model parameters estimated. A simulation model can then be constructed and validated both with existing data and through expert opinion. A crocodile population model to simulate the south Florida ecosystem under varying management strategies is vital to evaluating and assessing ... View entire text
