The Alaska Climate Science Center invites you to join them for a presentation and discussion about the Integrated Ecosystem Model. In the first part of the presentation, you'll learn about the IEM and some example applications in land and resource management.
Part of the Safeguarding Wildlife from Climate Change web series hosted by USFWS and National Wildlife Federation, this presentation will highlight an innovative riparian planting and restoration decision support tool, funded by the Appalachian Landscape Conservation Cooperative that is now available to the conservation community.
Join the Desert Research Institute for a day of conversation about climate, weather, and drought in the Great Basin. The Forum is intended for public and private resource managers and professionals, tribal members and NGOs.
The Heart of the Rockies Initiative conservation atlas is an interactive DataBasin portal that allows our conservation partners to access and apply a dynamic compilation of science products in landscape integrity, connectivity, and climate change impacts and responses. Portal data are derived from numerous agency, university, and NGO led research and planning efforts.
The Gulf Coastal Plains & Ozarks Landscape Conservation Cooperative Steering Committee traditionally meets two times per year face to face: in the spring for an annual retreat and in the fall, in conjunction with the Southeast Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies meeting. Below we have catalogued the background notebook materials prepared for Steering Committee members for each meeting, in chronological order, as well as the notes from each meeting.
LCC Conservation Planning Atlases (CPAs) are an incredible tool for increasing the discoverability and dissemination of geospatial data and conservation planning capacity of the LCC partnership. However, to be effective it is critical that CPAs reach the hands of the conservation practitioners they were built for. An "if you build it they will come" approach to raising CPA awareness and use may not be appropriate for some LCC CPAs.
In 2010, the Northeast Climate Science Center and the Gulf Coastal Plains & Ozarks LCC developed a Weather Severity Index (WSI; i.e., climate envelopes) to predict autumn-winter migration by mallards for use in annual and longer-term conservation and management strategies for waterfowl in North America (e.g., timing of wetland flooding and setting hunting season dates, respectively).
To address declining whitebark pine ecosystems, a 2012 report, A Range-Wide Restoration Strategy for Whitebark Pine Forests, presents a strategy for restoring these ecosystems across their entire range. However, this report did not address changing climates in the implementation of a range-wide strategy.
