Monitoring the Stephen's kangaroo rat: An analysis of monitoring methods and recommendations for future monitoring

Metadata Updated: October 10, 2019

This document covers a series of analyses to explore and summarize previous monitoring efforts of Stephens Kangaroo Rats (SKR) and make recommendations for future monitoring and management. This report reviewed a large amount of data collected from 1989 - 2001 provided to us by USFWS. Data related to the estimation of population parameters at the scale of individual sites or trapping grids, and to the estimation of population trends across space and through time as it relates to understanding overall population trends within a reserve was analyzed. Next a series of recommendations regarding 1) a monitoring protocol for collecting data synchronously across all reserves for use in refining and updating a reserve-wide monitoring program and, 2) collecting additional information about biological processes/mechanisms responsible for SKR population dynamics, follows.
