Monitoring will continue with surveys, remote sensing, satellite imagery, disease and movement monitoring, breeding site survey sampling, DNA and net sampling, herpetological web site, predictive modeling, ground truthing and taxonomic affinities an reclassification. Population, habitat and project-level monitoring are also included in the Rhode Island CWCS as well as distribution information, length frequency distributions, community-level monitoring and replication. These performance
measures provide information that pertains to conservation actions and provide for revisions to these actions if needed. The conservation action and proposed plans for GCN species and habitat monitoring occurs with help from several partners. These partners include but are not limited to the Partners in Flight, the United States Department of Agriculture, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the United States Forest Service and the United States Geological Service. Other partners are the Atlantic coast Joint Venture, the Rhode Island municipalities, the Continental council,
the Waterbird Conservation council, the North American Waterfowl Management Plan committee, the Rhode Island Department of Administration and the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management.
