frog calls, toad calls, Patuxent wildlife research center

This project will produce the first regional analysis of frog call survey data from the North American Amphibian Monitoring Program (NAAMP).  Eleven years (2001-2011) of survey data from the NAAMP will be used to provide a regional trend assessment and associated analytical methods for amphibians in the northeast.  NAAMP is a collaborative effort among USGS, State Agencies, and other partners, to monitor calling amphibians using a...

Connecticut River Unimpacted Flows Tool, Connecticut river basin

Work from this project allows users to identify a stream reach of interest in the Connecticut River basin and obtain estimated continuous daily, unregulated or “natural” streamflow at the selected location. The application spans the entire Connecticut River basin, including the states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. This work expands on a method developed for Massachusetts to estimate daily streamflows at ungaged locations. The project is divided into two tasks: 1)...

This project outlined the costs and benefits that biomass energy systems pose for Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) in the Northeast Region.   Wildlife biologists can use this information to recognize opportunities certain biomass energy applications present for managing SGCN and provide an impetus to work with biomass developers for mutual benefit.  For example, some biomass energy systems have the potential to provide components of habitat favorable to early successional SGCN. ...

upland, wetland, ecological systems, plant community, habitat classification

The Northeast Terrestrial Habitat Mapping Project was undertaken in 2008 with the support of this Regional Conservation Needs grant.  Development of a consistent habitat classification framework and map was seen by many Northeastern biologists and managers as the most critical initiative for habitat-based conservation efforts.  The purpose of this mapping effort is to provide a common framework and language for conservation planning and wildlife management across jurisdictional borders. ...

Eurasian water milfoil, invasive, exotic, plant

Exotic invasive species pose a significant threat to species of greatest conservation need (SGCN) throughout the Northeast in a number of ways. Impacts may be direct (affecting individual health or productivity) or indirect (affecting habitat and/or ecosystem processes) or both.  State wildlife action plans (SWAP) have identified wildlife species within each state that warrant some level of management concern. Causes for concern vary by species and typically loss of habitat, pollution, and...

The Nature Conservancy, conservation, wildlife, habitats

To encourage conservation and cooperation among states, this project synthesized data from multiple sources to reveal ecological patterns and the current condition of species and habitats in the Northeastern region.  We summarized the regional conservation status of each key habitat and species target by overlaying information on the location and condition of the target with information on conservation land ownership and management. Because the wildlife action plans in most States identified...
