Mississippi Project

A pattern oriented spatially-structured model of the interior population of the Least Tern (Sterna antillarum)

October 2012 - December 2014


Participating Agencies

  • Mississippi Ecological Services Field Office

Interior populations of the Least Tern (Sternula antillarum, hereafter ILT) are generally associated with sandbar habitats on large rivers of the central United States. We will develop theory, coding and system architecture of a pattern-oriented model for the ILT.
