Wood Stork use of Roadway Corridor Features in South Florida

The project has three components: The objective of the first component (stork use) is to determine the features of corridors and neighboring natural areas that are preferred and avoided by storks. The objective of the second component (fish production) is to determine the biomass and community structure of aquatic fauna (fish and crayfish: Procambarus spp.) produced in three corridor features (swales, ponds, canals) and adjacent natural marsh. The third objective (stork prey) is to determine what portion of the overall fish community in corridors should be considered as stork prey.
