New Mexico Project
Reconciling range-wide uncertainties in alligator Snapping turtle population viability using expert elicitation
August 2022 - August 2024
- U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service - Ecological Services
We are assisting the USFWS Alligator Snapping Turtle Species Status assessment team to develop a population viability model that predicted future abundance and extinction probability. In this project phase we are extending the model to include the entire species' range using expert elicited parameters. The results were used in the forth coming listing decision for both species of alligator snapping turtle.
