Connect Software and Guidance

Model / Software and Guidance

Connect is a set of tools that helps researchers and conservation planners model landscape connectivity for multiple wildlife species in complex heterogeneous landscapes. Connect also allows users to combine single-species models of animal movement to identify areas of the landscape that facilitate the movement of multiple species. Connect can be used to support the design of nature reserves, facilitate land management, or examine the effects of land-use change on animal movements.

Model / Software and Guidance

GIS-based spatially-explicit decision support system (DSS) derived from red-cockaded woodpecker (RCW, Picoides borealis) habitat and population information that can be used to simulate population dynamics on real and hypothetical landscapes. Designed especially to help identify and prioritize habitat parcels that impact RCW population dynamics on and in the vicinity of DoD installations in the southeastern United States and to evaluate potential impacts of different management and land use options on RCW populations. The DSS runs as an Arc extension in a point-and-click style and it incorporates an individual-based RCW population model. (To access the DSS, visit and click on Related Documents and Links option at the bottom of the page to download the software and User’s Guide.)

XBAT – Extensible Bioacoustic Tool


XBAT is an open-source extensible sound analysis application and MATLAB platform for developing sound analysis tools. It has been developed through on-going interaction with conservation scientists and animal communication researchers at the Cornell Bioacoustics Research Program. XBAT was designed to satisfy the diverse sound analysis needs of scientists who deal with large-scale data sets from both marine and terrestrial environments.
