Least tern productivity and forage availability on the Gavins Point reach of the Missouri River

This task focuses on least tern use of natural, restored, and newly created habitats under the Emergent Sandbar Habitat program on the Gavins Point reach. It is designed to fully integrate with a concurrent study of piping plover productivity and foraging ecology for the same river reach. The goal of this task is to provide information on the breeding population and success of least terns and a rigorous scientific evaluation of the value of restored and created sandbar habitat for meeting productivity goals for interior least terns.
