Summary

The goal of this project is to provide a sampling scheme and framework of methodologies that can be combined with those previously developed for small mammals, birds, and amphibians for simultaneous long-term monitoring of a diversity of wildlife on public and private lands. This project is being undertaken to provide a sampling scheme and framework of methodologies that can be combined with those previously developed for small mammals, birds, and amphibians for simultaneous long-term monitoring of a diversity of wildlife on public and private lands. This work will be accomplished utilizing existing FWP and MNHP (Montana Natural Heritage Program) staff, seasonal technicians, and other cooperators. The project will likely include up to 6 inventory crews who are active during the May-August field survey period. Bat-call recordings will be analyzed by MNHP staff for verification purposes, and their protocols for amphibian and reptile inventory procedures will be followed at all times. Results can be found in the associated reference reports.
