Description: The case: "You are a professional ecologist working for the fish and wildlife service, and have been given an assignment to manage a new wildlife refuge along the lower Rio Grande River. It is an unusual refuge since a portion of it must be 'constructed.' The fish and wildlife service plans to connect forest islands along the river, which will become not only a new refuge but also a 'wildlife corridor.' An initial study is needed to obtain estimates of species richness and relative abundance of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians in experimental and control plots. Experimental plots should be narrow one hundred meter wide 'corridor-like' forest patches. Control plots of similar habitat should be large (approximately 500 acres). You will also have to do a base line study of animal numbers and species in all existing forest islands. Breeding birds should be sampled by point count technique. Small mammals, reptiles, amphibians and some invertebrates should be sampled by pitfall array and Sherman live trap grids." Requires Internet Explorer.
