WS 2011 Research Needs Assessment

Ranking of Species/Species Groups

Eighty-six federal employees specified a species or species group in their written descriptions of their top three research needs. Feral swine and coyotes/canids by far were the species most frequently mentioned, followed by beavers and blackbirds/starlings. Feral swine and coyotes/canids also topped the written list of problems specified by state and private respondents, followed by bears, deer, and cormorants.

Number of federal respondents who identified various species or species groups as a top three priority research need.
