Description
  • My objectives were to determine the habitat use patterns, evaluate the effects of the removal of common reed (Phragmites australis) on habitat use, compare the relative effectiveness of two survey methodologies, and conduct an empirical study to assess the environmental and observer factors influencing the detection probability of Pecos assiminea, at Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. Pecos assiminea sampling occurred during 2013-2015.

Article
Seagrasses provide essential and global ecosystem services. However, due to natural and anthropogenic disturbance, seagrass meadows around the world have declined dramatically in recent decades. Researchers and managers have been calling for increased frequency and accuracy in the mapping of seagrass distributions to benefit seagrass conservation f...

Background/Question/Methods (184/200 words): For effective conservation, managers first must understand where species occur. A useful tool for understanding species ranges are species distribution models (SDMs), which make predictions by relating occurrences with environmental factors. SDMs assume that occurrence data provide an accurate representa...

Developing effective monitoring methods for elusive, rare, or patchily distributed species requires extra considerations, such as imperfect detection. Although detection is frequently modeled, the opportunity to assess it empirically is rare, particularly for imperiled species. We used Pecos assiminea (Assiminea pecos), an endangered semiaquatic sn...

Evaluating the precision of age estimates generated by different readers and different calcified structures is an important part of generating reliable estimations of growth, recruitment, and mortality for fish populations. Understanding the potential loss of precision associated with using structures harvested without sacrificing individuals, such...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Pecos Assiminea is an endangered, semi-aquatic snail endemic to two spring systems located in eastern New Mexico and west Texas. Basic biological information needed for effective monitoring and conservation is currently lacking for this species. Our objectives were to compare the effectiveness of surveys using two gear types, quadrats (n = 366) and...
