Using Dynamic Segmentation to Create Home Ranges for Aquatic Species
Aquatic biological species form food webs in the Labranche Wetlands, Louisana. This wetland is characterized by a series of interconnected bayous forming a network. The home ranges of fish are important to model spatially in the ecosystem due to their ability to move upstream and downstream as the top predator. These home ranges are modeled as segments in the network based on the dynamic segmentation methodology. The purpose of this paper is to enhance the spatial representation of the ecosystem to another researcher and allow for better interpretation of modeling results. This paper describes how to build a bayous network, how to attach points to them and how to link segments using dynamic segmentation. Namely this paper discusses in detail the use of dynamic segmentation using ArcInfo and ArcView.
