We are currently seeking applicants for a 9-month research assistantship to develop a ground-based survey methodology and statistical analysis package to index the abundance of watering waterfowl on SCDNR waterfowl areas. This survey will serve as a ground-based means to substitute the mid-winter waterfowl survey. Survey methodology will be developed to account for detection probability, thus providing estimates of true abundance. The research assistant will work in the lowlands of South Carolina developing the survey followed by time at Clemson analyzing data. This is a collaborative project with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. The position will be supervised by Dr. Beth Ross.
