  • Modeling the Potential for Large High-Severity Fires in the Klamath Basin Region of California and Oregon and Their Potential Impacts on Marten and Fisher
    The objective of this project was to use relatively recent fire severity data to create scientifically defensible maps of areas that may be at risk of high-severity fires in the Klamath region of northern California and southern Oregon over the next decade or so based on vegetation, terrain, and climate variables. As a first attempt of this nature for the ...
  • Habitat Connectivity for Fishers & Martens in the Klamath Basin Region of CA & OR
    This report identifies important landscape connectivity areas in the mid-Klamath Basin of northern California and southern Oregon for two forest species of conservation concern: Pacific marten (Martes caurina) and Pacific fisher (Pekania pennanti). It assesses current connectivity status and identifies where connectivity could be improved through restoration or other actions. Results for the current condition could serve as a baseline ...
  • 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 ...
