Evaluation of an expert-based landscape suitability model for King rails in the Upper Mississippi River and Great Lakes Joint Venture Region


January 2008 - September 2010


The three primary objectives are for evaluating the JV King Rail model are: 1) determine the value of an expert-based approach to landscape assessment for the species, 2) collect actual population and habitat data which will be used to build a better model, and 3) provide better distribution information for this species and other secretive marsh birds sampled while evaluating the model.
