The application of habitat modeling to the desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii)

Citation

Schamberger, Melvin L, and Turner, Frederick B, The application of habitat modeling to the desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii): .

Summary

Habitat modeling offers an approach to understanding some management problems of desert tortoises (Gopherus agassizii) and to focusing new research efforts. Modeling can provide (1) a method to organize existing information, (2) a means to identify whether physical habitat or some factor outside the scope of the habitat model is limiting populations, (3) a method to integrate habitat into resource development planning, and (4) a mechanism for focusing research on missing species-habitat information. Published in Herpetologica, volume 42, issue 1, on pages 134 - 138, in 1986.
