Spatially-explicit population viability analysis

Seth is working with co-authors to build a spatially-explicit population viability analysis for Mojave desert tortoises that incorporates spatially-realistic demographic connectivity in the predictive surface.  The resulting publication and maps will be useful for land managers in the northeastern portion of the range of desert tortoise to better understand where on the landscape desert tortoises are most likely to become locally extirpated to provide for targeted conservation and management actions.  Stay tuned!
