Monitoring protocol for the Ord's kangaroo rat

Description

The Alberta Recovery Plan for Ord's kangaroo rat calls for standardized population monitoring as a highly priority recovery activity. The purpose is to establish a long-term database that supports defensible, inter-annual comparisons of distribution, relative abundance, and survival, including: i) evaluation of population-persistence and rates of extinction and re-colonization of local populations; ii) quantification of variation and trends in relative abundance; and iii) estimation of annual survivorship. These measures will be used to direct management activities and to evaluate the relative success of the recovery of this species. This document provides a detailed population monitoring protocol to serve as a guide for implementation of long-term, standardized monitoring for the Ord's kangaroo rat in Alberta.
