  • Mapping Habitat Connectivity Priority Areas that are Climate-wise and Multi-scale, for Three Regions of California
    Habitat connectivity is a cornerstone of conservation, as its key goal is to connect an increasingly fragmented landscape, allowing for gene flow between wildlife meta-populations (Taylor et al. 1993; Beier & Noss 1998). A well-connected landscape is also critical for the viability of many species in the face of climate change, as it allows for movement necessary to track suitable ...
  • San Joaquin Land and Water Strategy
    Water scarcity, a changing climate, new regulations, and a growing population are just some of the challenges facing farmers and farmland in the San Joaquin Valley, California’s largest agricultural region. To protect the most important farmland and water supplies in the region, American Farmland Trust (AFT) and Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) analyzed the distribution, quality, and future impacts to the ...
  • Enhancing the Resilience of Edaphic Endemic Plants, Final Report
    This study presents an approach for identifying and describing geographic areas that support edaphic endemic species and their habitat in a design that enhances resilience and provides opportunities for shifting distributions. We developed conceptual models to inform field studies and management, refined soils and vegetation attributes, and assessed regional population structure and threats. We used results to suggest prioritized locations ...
  • Brachypodium Control, Phase II Project Report
    The Brachypodium Phase II project treated 19.5 acres of Brachypodium-infested habitat, and compared monitoring methods and treatment effectiveness on the Crestridge Ecological Reserve and South Crest Preserve in San Diego County, California. This project continued treatments initiated under the Brachypodium Phase I project. The San Diego Association of Government (SANDAG) Transnet Environmental Mitigation Program provided grant funding for both ...
  • Recommendations for Monitoring of Species and Habitats in Sierra Nevada National Forests
    This report summarizes recommendations from a panel of independent scientists concerning how Region 5 of the U.S. Forest Service should consider performing monitoring of plant and animal species and their habitats within the Sierra Nevada National Forests (SNF). It was motivated by a settlement agreement between the Forest Service and several conservation organizations concerning how the Service had been ...
