Demographic status and population genetic differentiation of Candy Darter populations in Virginia

Duration

July 2016 - September 2018

Narrative

OBJECTIVES:
(1) Document spatiotemporal shifts in occupancy and suitability of riffles in Stony Creek and Cripple Creek.
(2) Monitor populations to estimate relative population size for use in demographic projections and assessment of population viability.
(3) Estimate life-history attributes such as fecundity, age-specific survival, annual recruitment, and age structure.
(4) Analyze molecular and life-history data to define demographic and evolutionarily significant units for the species and to estimate genetic diversity and effective population size.
