Comment:

This is an adequate proposal even though it does not relate its work to the Fish and Wildlife Program. It ranked in the midrange of proposals in the set. The project objectives appear very productive and provocative and include successful tech transfer via the worldwide web. The proposal claims that the model incorporates about everything. But how? The history and background are good (but more a statement of accomplishment than need for more work). Why model, why integrate? It is surprising that the proposal does not explicitly link it to other Fish and Wildlife Program projects, since it is one of the main integrating projects in the Fish and Wildlife Program. The proposal needs to be coordinated with 8910800, 9601900 and 9018 by the same principal investigator. It appears he is well over 100% committed if all the work is funded; thus, other personnel need to be identified.
