Adaptive management of biological systems: A review
Adaptive Management (AM) is widely considered to be the best available approach for managing biolog- ical systems in the presence of uncertainty. But AM has ...
Buried by bad decisions
From the text: Alas, research shows that when human beings make decisions, they tend to focus on what they are getting and forget about what we are forgoing.
Citizen Involvement in the U.S. Endangered Species Act
Data on listed species refute critiques of citizen involvement in the U.S. Endangered Species Act.
Bias in the attribution of forest carbon sinks
A substantial fraction of the terrestrial carbon sink, past and present, may be incorrectly attributed to environmental change rather than changes in forest ...
Cumulative Effects of Fire and Fuels Management on Stream Water Quality and Ecosystem Dynamics
Prescribed fires and wildland fire-use are increasingly important management tools used to reduce fuel loads and restore the ecological integrity of western ...
Changes in winter precipitation extremes for the western United States under a warmer climate as simulated by regional climate models
We find a consistent and statistically significant increase in the intensity of future extreme winter precipitation events over the western United States, as ...
Effective Enforcement in a Conservation Area
There are two primary approaches to wildlife conservation, the generation of economic benefits from wildlife to local communities, so that protecting wildlife ...
Conservation value of forests attacked by bark beetles: Highest number of indicator species is found in early successional stages
Heavy natural disturbance in large protected areas of former commercial forests increasingly evokes European parliaments to call for management intervention ...
Effects of Management on Carbon Sequestration in Forest Biomass in Southeast Alaska
The Tongass National Forest (Tongass) is the largest national forest and largest area of old-growth forest in the United States. Spatial geographic informa- ...
Biodiversity and ecosystem multifunctionality
Biodiversity loss can affect ecosystem functions and services1–4. Individual ecosystem functions generally show a positive asymptotic relationship with ...
Comment: Don’t judge species on their origins
SUMMARY: Conservationists should assess organisms on environmental impact rather than on whether they are natives, argue Mark Davis and 18 other ecologists. ...
Assessing the impacts of livestock production on biodiversity in rangeland ecosystems
Biodiversity in rangelands is decreasing, due to intense utilization for livestock production and conversion of rangeland into cropland; yet the outlook of ...
Biotic Drivers of Stream Planform: Implications for Understanding the Past and Restoring the Future
Traditionally, stream channel planform has been viewed as a function of larger watershed and valley-scale physical variables, including valley slope, the ...
Adaptation: Planning for Climate Change and Its Effects on Federal Lands
National forest managers are charged with tackling the effects of climate change on the natural resources under their care. The Forest Service National ...
Allowable carbon emissions lowered by multiple climate targets
Climate targets are designed to inform policies that would limit the magnitude and impacts of climate change caused by anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse ...
Challenges in the conservation, rehabilitation and recovery of native stream salmonid populations: beyond the 2010 Luarca symposium
– In May 2010, I chaired a session on challenges to salmonid conservation at the international symposium ‘Advances in the population ecology of stream ...
Climate change impacts on the biophysics and economics of world fisheries
Global marine fisheries are underperforming economically because of overfishing, pollution and habitat degradation. Added to these threats is the looming ...
Conservation VALUE OF ROADLESS AREAS FOR VULNERABLE FISH AND Wildlife Species in the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem, Montana
The Crown of the Continent Ecosystem is one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world and most ecologically intact ecosystem remaining in ...
Climate change and the ecologist
The evidence for rapid climate change now seems overwhelming. Global temperatures are predicted to rise by up to 4 °C by 2100, with associated alterations in ...
Are conservation organizations configured for effective adaptation to global change?
Conservation organizations must adapt to respond to the ecological impacts of global change. Numerous changes to conservation actions (eg facilitated ...
Scenarios of future land use change around United States’ protected areas
Land use change around protected areas can diminish their conservation value, making it important to predict future land use changes nearby. Our goal was to ...
Invited Review: Quantifying surface albedo and other direct biogeophysical climate forcings of forestry activities
By altering fluxes of heat, momentum, and moisture exchanges between the land surface and atmosphere, forestry and other land-use activities affect climate. ...
Fear of failure in conservation: The problem and potential solutions to aid conservation of extremely small populations
The potential for extirpation of extremely small populations (ESPs) is high due to their vulnerability to demographic and environmental stochasticity and ...
Historical legacies accumulate to shape future biodiversity in an era of rapid global change
Main conclusions : The failure to give adequate consideration to widespread cumulative time-lags often masks the full extent of biodiversity changes that have ...
Reform forest fire management: Agency incentives undermine policy effectiveness
Globally, wildfire size, severity, and frequency have been increasing, as have related fatalities and taxpayer- funded firefighting costs (1). In most ...
