Habitat Suitability Index Models: Black brant

January 1, 1984

A review and synthesis of existing information were used to develop a habitat suitability index model for wintering habitat of the black brant (Branta bernicla nigracans). The model consolidates habitat use information into a framework appropriate for field application and is scaled to produce an index value between 0.0 (unsuitable habitat) to 1.0 (optimum habitat). Habitat suitability index (HSI) models are designed to be used with Habitat Evaluation Procedures previously developed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
