SERDP and ESTCP efforts are developing and demonstrating the science, models, methods, and technologies associated with species management. The focus of these efforts is on minimizing impacts and reducing conflicts between threatened, endangered, and at-risk species management and military activities, identifying species vulnerable to population and habitat decline, maintaining long-term species and habitat viability, and reducing the potential for future listings. The preceding efforts include:

  • Individually based population models
  • Species distribution, habitat association, and connectivity models
  • Coupled species-ecosystem models
  • Decision support tools associated with individual and multiple species management decisions
  • Inventory and monitoring technologies and methods
  • Behavioral response information and models (e.g., for marine mammals)
  • Control methods and tools (invasive species)
