Decisions regarding the allocation of scarce resources are integral to the management of imperiled species. Managers need to determine what restoration activities will have the most benefit, where reintroductions are most feasible, and when to cease interventions in locations where persistence is highly unlikely. For many imperiled taxa, these kinds of decisions are made without the benefit of the most essential information: quantitative estimates of population viability.
Landscape Conservation Design Webinar Series - Co-sponsored by the University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, School of Natural Resources and the Environment
Presenter: Steve Traxler, Science Coordinator, Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative (PFLCC), US Fish and Wildlife Service
This webinar will build on the August webinar on scenario planning collaborative approach discussed by Barry Fradkin of GeoAdaptive, Inc. The PFLCC has utilized urbanization and climate change scenarios previously developed by USFWS, USGS, and staff at MIT. These stakeholder based scenarios initially covered half of Florida and were expanded to the whole state.
Pacific Northwest Coast Landscape Conservation Design Project staff hosted six workshops throughout the project footprint. The workshops took place in Olympia, WA, Portland, OR, and Newport, OR and welcomed more than 80 stakeholders including many new organizations and their representatives to the project. The goal of these workshops was to provide an overview on the project and to gather feedback from new stakeholders, particularly those in lo

A Northern Latitudes LCCs Webinar...
The Yukon River Basin (YRB), underlain by discontinuous permafrost, has experienced a warming climate over the last century that has altered air temperature, precipitation, and permafrost. A collaborative effort between the Yukon River Inter-Tribal Watershed Council (YRITWC) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the Indigenous Observation Network (ION) has developed two projects that focus on water quality and permafrost research.
Researchers Danny Martin and Dan Manier will provide a description of their project focused on improving inventory and monitoring techniques and information for reptiles across the Great Plains. This includes development and testing of methodology for low-budget (volunteer-based); regional reptile monitoring to better enable systematic and accurate collection of data representing the distribution and abundance of reptiles, their habitats, and associated species in priority conservation areas;
