Abstract: This Fellowship research proposal forms part of a larger research project funded through NSF’s Biocomplexity seed grant to UND’s Department of Biology. As part of their work with host - parasite / pathogen interactions on a spatially heterogeneous and temporally dynamic landscape, our portion focuses on the hydrological modeling of grassland-wetland linkages in natural and human-dominated landscapes. Dr. Brad Rundquist and graduate student Paul Sethre of UND’s Department of Geography are quantifying the dynamics of wetland and open water extent using historical remote sensing imagery. Their results will complement our research component, which will provide a conceptual framework and model that describes the spatial and temporal variation of hydrologic features at Newman's amphibian study site in eastern Nelson County, North Dakota.
