ShoreZone Habitat Capability Modeling

August 01, 2007

A study of potential suitable habitat for the invasive European green crab in Southeast Alaska, British Columbia, and Washington State.

The principal objective of this study is to develop a habitat capability model that appraises the sensitivity of coastal environments to colonization by the non-native European green crab Carcinus maenas. In our usage, habitat is a spatial entity that possesses physical and biological attributes that support particular organisms or communities.
