Abstract:

This thesis describes conceptual and methodological work that aims to advance the science of modeling and mapping wildlife habitat in human-modified landscapes. First, I review how researchers have defined and measured the quality of wildlife habitat over the past four decades. I then demonstrate a new approach to quantifying habitat quality by modeling habitat for the federally endangered Red-cockaded Woodpecker (Picoides borealis, RCW) across the Onslow Bight, a one million hectare region of North Carolina's coastal plain. Next, I describe the development and operation of a GIS toolbox for ArcGIS 9.3, called Connect, designed to help conservation practitioners incorporate habitat connectivity considerations into land management and land-use planning. In two stakeholder-driven case studies, I use the Connect tools to prioritize private land parcels for connectivity conservation in fragmented habitats around Fort Bragg, NC, and evaluate the effectiveness of a proposed corridor in promoting dispersal for RCW in the face of urban development.
