Summary:
The Florida apple snail (Pomacea paludosa) is found in tropical/subtropical freshwater ecosystems climate (Cordeiro & Perez, 2011). The Florida apple snail is of special management interest because survival of the endangered Snail Kite (Rostrhamus sociabilis plumbeus) depends on a healthy populations of apple snails. Results of this study show Florida apple snails occur independently of habitat type (slough, prairie etc.), which should indicate abundant foraging habitats available to Snail Kites. However, Snail Kites show preferences for specific foraging habitats, which suggests that they are more restricted in available habitat than what snail habitat use would suggest.
