    Description

    Large-scale ecological studies and assessments are often implemented only after the focus of study generates substantial social, political, or legal pressure to take action (e.g., Thomas et al. 1990; Ruggiero et al. 1991; FEMAT 1993). In such a funding environment, the coordinated planning of research may suffer as the pressure to produce results escalates. To avoid haphazard research and to maximize the benefits to lynx conservation with limited research funds, a carefully coordinated approach to lynx research is needed. The purpose of this chapter is to provide a systematic framework and rationale for conducting future research in ways that will maximize the applicability and utility of new information.
