Stream Impacts from Water Withdrawals in Marcellus Shale Region
New research is providing information to help resource managers, industry and others make informed decisions in achieving sustainable river and stream flows that balance the needs of society and healthy ecosystems.
New Clearinghouse for Ecosystem Benefits and Risks Information
The Appalachian LCC and the U.S. Forest Service recently released a wealth of data, maps, and other products assessing benefits of and risks to the region's ecosystem services, providing regional resources and tools for incorporating natural assets valued by society into planning and management decisions.
Planning and Design
The Appalachian Cooperative members and partners are collaborating to spatially identify priority lands and waters important for healthy ecosystems and biodiversity as part of a comprehensive conservation design across the LCC geography.
Assessing Future Energy Development across the Appalachians
This study and online mapping tool provides needed research to inform discussions on how to protect essential natural resources while realizing the benefits of increased domestic energy production.
Stream Classification System
for the Appalachian LCC
A new classification for Appalachian streams and rivers overcomes a major hurdle to effective planning by unifying state-based stream classifications into a single, consistent system that represents the region’s natural aquatic habitats.
Providing the conservation community with a platform to search for experts from a wide range of fields and network with those of similar research, habitat, and funding interests.
