Florida Freshwater and Tidal Stream Fish Distribution Mapping: Phase I - Panhandle
This project employed Geographic Information System (GIS) applications and modeling software to generate maps of the potential habitats for 55 species of freshwater fish known to occur in Florida's panhandle region.

Florida Stream Habitat Classification
This project developed a statewide stream habitat classification GIS data layer this is necessary for identifying existing and potential habitats of aquatic species.

Mapping Threats to Florida Freshwater Habitats
This project assembled statewide data layers representing 10 uncorrelated individual threats to Florid's freshwater habitats and created a composite index of the threat data layers to determine relative condition of freshwater habitats within Florida.
