How Both Short and Long Term Wildlife Research can Inform Management (Web-based)
Long term research plays an invaluable role in informing natural resource management, particularly for long-lived wildlife species. However, short term and even opportunistic research can also yield important and sometimes surprising results relevant to management. This webinar will discuss management implications of a follow up survey of the alligator snapping turtle population on the Flint River, 22 years after eliminating harvest. In addition the success of a forest restoration project from the eyes of pine snakes, and the unexpected added value of surveys of one threatened species (the gopher tortoise) for the conservation of another (the gopher frog).
