Featured Paper By Erin Riley & Wendy Orth

To complete a Before-After-Control-Impact Study (BACI Study), mobile GIS, statistical analyses, and ArcView were used to collect and analyze wildlife-tracking data in rural San Diego County. The BACI Study is part of a road-widening project, which includes the installation of under-crossings to facilitate wildlife movement across Wildcat Canyon Road, preventing habitat fragmentation. The BACI Study was designed to monitor wildlife activity for one-year pre- and post-construction to determine if the road-widening project has changed the wildlife activity patterns in this important wildlife corridor and to test the effectiveness of the road under-crossings and directional fencing. During the pre-construction data collection, the Cedar Fire of October 2003 burned the entire study area, adding to the complexity of the data analysis. Mobile GIS, statistical analyses, and ArcView were used to identify and describe pre-construction movement trends. The post-construction portion of the study is scheduled to begin in August 2006, using similar analyses.
