  • Members of the NWRC Advanced Applications Team Work to Refine the Greater Everglades Apple Snail Population Model: USGS National Wetlands Research Center contractor/Computer Programmer Joshua Bridevaux and University of Louisiana at Lafayette Research Scientist Suresh Golcond, both of the Advanced Applications Team, recently met with Don DeAngelis (USGS Southeast Ecological Science Center) and Phillip Darby (University of West Florida) to assess the outputs and modify the logic of the Apple Snail population model for the Greater Everglades. This ecological model is one of many models supported by JEM (Joint Ecosystem Modeling) which works across disciplines and agencies to bring modeling and visualization tools to the natural resource managers desktop.  For more information about JEM tools contact (Craig Conzelmann; Lafayette, La.; 337-266-8842 or Stephanie Romañach; Davie, Fla.; 754-264-6060)
