Abstract : Supporting the military mission while continuing to protect threatened and endangered (T&E) species presents a unique challenge to the Army. Land managers need species-specific information to help them make better decisions regarding training exercises, troop and vehicle movements, and other mission requirements. Traditional methods of collecting data in the field and manually entering it into computer databases for analysis lag behind technological capabilities. To address these problems, land managers at Fort Hood, TX, tasked the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratories with developing a an efficient program for use by field technicians who collect survey data on endangered birds inhabiting the installation. This report presents nine programs designed to be run in the field during survey and data collection activities.
