Habitat Patch Size and Detection Probability of Yuma Clapper Rail: This project is supported by the Showing Success program funding within the Fish and Wildlife Service. The focus of the research is threefold: to evaluate the interactions between habitat patch size and occupation/density of rails using the patch, estimate detection probability of rails under the current survey protocol, and quantify the extent to which recently burned marshes are re-occupied by rails. These topics are identified in the revised draft recovery plan as tasks necessary to achieve recovery. The project will take advantage of existing datasets developed by Dr. Conway for monitoring in various habitat patches, presence of already radio-transmittered rails from a selenium study done in the same area by USGS and FWS, and separate funding to Dr. Conway to continue studied on the effectiveness of prescribed burning.
