Understanding the importance of dynamic landscape connectivity

Publications Posted on: October 01, 2020
Landscape connectivity is increasingly promoted as a conservation tool to combat the negative effects of habitat loss, fragmentation, and climate change. Given its importance as a key conservation strategy, connectivity science is a rapidly growing discipline.

National Wild Turkey Federation Programs

I recently read an article about several women who were preparing to sit 80 ft (25 m) above a forest floor in tree-sitting nets to protest a logging operation in Jefferson National Forest (Appalachia). Tree hugging is nothing new in this country. But did environmental activists know we have more forests now than we did in the 1920s? In 1920, we only had 735 million ac (297 million ha) of forest land.

Grassland bird conservation, their migrations, and grazing management amid the changing climate of the Great Plains

Documents and Media Posted on: November 20, 2015
Steve Zack and Kevin Ellison talked about grassland birds as a key group of concern for wildlife conservation in the Great Plains. They described how grazing management of native and non-native grazers is an essential and flexible tool for managing bird habitat under a changing climate. Document Type: Presentations

Robust network design for multispecies conservation

Publications Posted on: October 01, 2013
Our work is motivated by an important network design application in computational sustainability concerning wildlife conservation. In the face of human development and climate change, it is important that conservation plans for protecting landscape connectivity exhibit certain level of robustness.

Cause, effect, and observational studies

Publications Posted on: October 01, 2013
A critical niche of the Journal of Wildlife Management is to publish research that will help guide wildlife conservation. Hence, nearly every paper concludes with a Management Implications section which is the "so what'" part of the paper. In other words, how does the science reported in the paper contribute to the management and conservation of the species or system studied?

Incorporating remotely sensed tree canopy cover data into broad scale assessments of wildlife habitat distribution and conservation

Publications Posted on: February 12, 2010
Remote sensing provides critical information for broad scale assessments of wildlife habitat distribution and conservation. However, such efforts have been typically unable to incorporate information about vegetation structure, a variable important for explaining the distribution of many wildlife species.

Riparian buffer design guidelines for water quality and wildlife habitat functions on agricultural landscapes in the Intermountain West: Case Study

Publications Posted on: December 27, 2007
This hypothetical case study illustrates how the riparian buffer planning protocol described in the RB handbook is used to plan a buffer for both water quality and wildlife conservation on a specific project site.
