Species Distribution Models

Habitat Suitability Models for the Imperiled Wood Turtle

Using Ecological Niche Models to help guide Wood Turtle managment under future climate change

Developing an open-source toolset to improve landscape connectivity planning

Landscape connectivity is a vital component of biodiversity conservation as it facilitates the movement of individuals and genes between habitat patches to help maintain populations and metapopulations and increase persistence of species faced with global change. With the current rate of global change and lack of resources for conservation, prioritization of which habitats and corridors should be conserved to promote maximum landscape connectivity for species persistence is necessary to most efficiently enact effective management plans.
