Applying a Suitability Analysis for the White Tailed Kite in the UCSB Region
Much effort has been put forth to protect and conserve ecological areas of the UCSB area. However, habitat fragmentation still threatens regional biodiversity. Habitat linkages and connectivity will give species larger home ranges and thus larger population sizes. Although the White-Tailed Kite is a bird of prey and can easily travel between segregated open-space areas, its principal prey, the California vole, cannot. A suitability map of the White-Tailed Kite was created, based on three factors: urban disruption, which is represented in the form of decibel levels, and habitat suitability for both the Kite and the California Vole.
