2002 Wildlife Corridor Monitoring Study for the Multiple Species Conservation Program report

Monitoring species use of habitat linkages and wildlife corridors is one component of the MSCP Biological Monitoring Plan (Ogden 1996). The monitoring plan was developed to document compliance with the MSCP, measure the effectiveness of the conservation program, and inform adaptive management decisions. This study was designed to address the following questions: Are the wildlife corridors identified in the subarea plans functional? What large mammals (deer, mountain lion, bobcat, coyote) and mesopredators use the linkages? What potential constraints to animal movement exist in these areas? Where are habitat restoration or other management actions needed to facilitate animal movement? Does the Scripps-Poway Parkway underpass function effectively for wildlife movement? What survey methods are most efficient in identifying corridor use and evaluating corridor function for each target species?
