Determination, Biological Consequences, and Modeling of Sex-Specific Demographic Rates in Declining, Threatened, or Endangered Metapopulations
Entry ID: brdpwrc0053

Abstract: Proper management of animal populations requires an understanding of both
population dynamics and ecology, and more research that integrates population
dynamics and ecological studies is needed to identify the causal factors
involved in population declines, recoveries, and viability. The information
being generated from such studies will allow managers 1) to identify
species-at-risk earlier, 2) to ... View entire text

Purpose: The major objective of this study is to develop new multistate
capture-recapture/resighting and ultrastructural models to examine sex-specific
regional survival, movement, and recruitment rates. Once developed, these
general types of models can be adapted easily for widespread use on a variety
of species. For the study species (Roseate Tern) being used to generate data
for model development, ... View entire text
