The following models have been published or are being developed by researchers at the Environmental Sciences Division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory for use by land managers.

Modeling Species Dynamics

Territorial Migrant Birds
Population model of Henslow's sparrows (Ammodramus henslowii) and cerulean warblers (Dendroica cerulea) as territorial migrants. (King et al. submitted)
Red-Cockaded Woodpecker (Picoides borealis)
Metapopulation model of red-cockaded woodpeckers across the bird's present range. This model is under development.
Karner Blue Butterfly (Lycaeides melissa samuelis)
Metapopulation model of Karner blue butterflies at Fort McCoy (WI). This model is under development.

Modeling Habitat

Henslow's Sparrow
Mulit-layer, inductive-deductive, GIS-based model of Henslow's sparrow habitat at Fort Knox (KY). (Hargrove et al. submitted)
Cerulean Warbler
GIS-based model of cerulean warbler habitat at Fort Knox. (Hargrove et al. submitted)
Cedar Barrens
GIS-based model of cedar barrens (also called slope glades or limestone glades) on the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge Reservation (TN) and at Fort Knox. (Dale et al. in press; Hargrove et al. submitted; Mann et al. in prep.)
