Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit (Florida/Caribbean) (Cesu): Major goals of the South Florida Everglades Restoration Initiative are to restore and maintain native biological diversity of South Florida, and to recover threatened and endangered species. Effective protection of an area's ecological integrity involves having the ability to measure and define ecological integrity, and to evaluate and monitor effects of restoration. Objectives of this project are to provide a scientifically based assessment of the effects of Everglades restoration alternatives on modeling initiatives, as well as the effects of Everglades restoration on indicator species such as amphibians and alligators. This project will accomplish several tasks with a combination of field data collection, GIS mapping, and computer simulation. The main objectives are designed to answer questions critical to restoration success and to provide tools necessary for evaluation through four tasks:1. Provide technical assistance and data collection during alligator survey and capture and to assist in the development of monitoring methods necessary for evaluation of restoration success in alligator populations;2. Provide technical assistance and data collection during amphibian survey and capture and to assist in the development of methods necessary for measuring the area occupancy of amphibian communities across habitats and environmental gradients ; and,3. Select and establish performance measures in forecasting models and to develop a system-wide monitoring program to measure restoration success for the Southwest Florida Feasibility Study (SWFFS).4. Provide science support as necessary to accomplish other tasks.5. Integrate hydrologic, ecological and water quality sampling networks into the Everglades Depth Estimation Network (EDEN) and the Joint Ecosystem Modeling (JEM) laboratory for the purpose of supporting decision support tools.
