Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In northern Illinois, aquatic surveys over the last 20 years have been identifying new populations for the state-threatened IowaDarter. We created historic and current species distribution models to examine the extent of habitat loss in Illinois. These models suggest that there has been a reduction in the historic distribution of E. exilein Illinois. The current model will be used to conduct targeted surveys to determine the current range in Illinois, in-stream habitat needs, and possibly estimates of state-wide E. exile population.
