Summary:
A review and synthesis of existing information were used to develop a model for evaluating estuarine habitat for the hard clam. The model is scaled to produce an index of habitat suitability between 0 (unsuitable habitat) and 1 (optimum habitat) for the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States. Habitat suitability indices are designed for use with the Habitat Evaluation Procedures previously developed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
