FY2016Planning scenarios will allow the GBLCC to develop a scenario planning document to visualize multidimensional scenarios. By using a participatory modeling process, the scenarios produced are managementrelevant and will have buyin from all major stakeholders.

Landscape Conservation Cooperatives use a collaborative approach to identify landscape scale conservation solutions. LCCs work across jurisdictional and political boundaries to work with partners to: meet unfilled conservation needs, develop decision support tools, share data and knowledge, and facilitate and foster partnerships.
As part of a shared science strategy, LCCs coordinate closely with the National Climate Change and Wildlife Center and the eight regional Climate Science Centers.
Research on coastal change in Cook Inlet and South East Alaska has increased rapidly in recent years, making it challenging to track existing projects, understand their cumulative insights, gauge remaining research gaps, and prioritize future work.
|In conservation, one challenge of climate change adaptation is that acting on projected long-term climatic threats requires two ‘leaps’ by managers: 1) Acting on climate-based inf|
This project will result in development of an information management and delivery system to coordinate science communication platforms and to build a catalog inside of the USGS ScienceBase data and information management platform.
The Cascadia Parner Forum fosters a network of natural resource practitioners working with the NPLCC and GNLCC to guild the adaptive capacity of the landscape and species living within it.
Scenarios, CLIP, and induation modeling will be incorporated into a decision support framework to help planners and managers view the information and be able to develop management options and adaptation plans in areas were need
The LCC will partner with ARLIS to produce an electronic database of the most relevant scientific and resource management literature, planning efforts, and conservation priorities within the NWB LCC region.
With funding provided by the LCC Network, the NWB LCC is joining with other Alaska-based LCCs to collaborate with the Conservation Biology Institute in the development of a Conservation Planning Atlas (CPA) for Alaska and Northwest Canada.
FY2014This project proposes to test the hypothesis that soil fungistasis (suppression of fungal pathogens by soil microbes in carbohydrate-limited soil) and its alleviation through natural carbohydrate augmentation (e.g., cheatgrass litter, leakage from cheatgrass roots) are the principal process
Grassland-shrubland prairie has been important to the livelihoods of generations of ranchers; to the hunting community because of prized game species; and to endangered species, such as the black-capped vireo, as habitat.
Rocky Mountain Research Station scientists initiated a study in the 1990s on avian distribution and habitat associations within the Sky Islands.
This is a step in building effective partnerships was by identifying "who is doing what" and the interests and capacities of different organizations within the regional conservation community.
Developing the Caribbean blueprint for conservation
web based database: who is doing what in the agricultural sector
Further development of the capacity of the CLCC to address working lands conservation issuers
Phases 1-3 (2010-2012): This project will develop landscape change scenarios based upon water availability and precipitation and temperature patterns projected from downscaled models and investigate impacts of these changes on habitats and ecology of waterfowl, shorebirds, and other waterbirds in
This project will develop a foundation for monitoring environmental change by identifying where and what to monitor in order to evaluate climate-change impacts.
Phase 1 (2011): This project used species distribution modeling, population genetics, and geospatial analysis of historical vs. modern vertebrate populations to identify climate change refugia and population connectivity across the Sierra Nevada.
The California Climate Commons is an online library in which land managers and their technical support staff can quickly find the climate change and adaptation information they need and communicate with the researchers producing the data.
This research will develop and implement a user-friendly web-based tool to identify priority areas for riparian restoration in the context of predicted climate change at the appropriate scale needed by practitioners.
Partnership with GINA to complete uniform and consistent ecological mapping of the North Slope region and provide a summary of existing field site ecological descriptions (including photos) in a web base environment.
The ABSI region is one of the most remote and inaccessible areas within the national LCC network. As a result, access is both limited and expensive.
The purpose of this project is to: (1) develop GIS data layer(s) of cultural sites that can be used in vulnerability assessments; and (2) develop an annotated bibliography of literature about cultural resources that can help guide future management and research in the region.
Project will create a spatially-explicit database of terrestrial invasive and introduced species in the Aleutian and Bering Sea Islands region.
