  • Spatial Patterns in Land Use and Water Quality in the Tillamook Bay Watershed: A GIS Mapping Project
    Degradation of water quality is important to the residents and visitors of Tillamook Bay because it has been linked to loss of income due to oyster bed closures, declines in salmonid populations and can result in a decrease of recreational use of the estuary's resources. Both point and non-point sources of pollution have been targeted for investigation by the ...
  • A GIS-Based Model for Assessing Conservation Focal Areas for the Redwood Ecoregion
    The purpose of this project was to create a GIS-based model that identifies specific focal areas throughout the range of the redwoods. Focal areas were defined as zones that offer the best conservation opportunities for long-term protection and maintenance of the redwood ecosystem based on current conditions. GIS was utilized because of its spatially explicit architecture and advanced analytical ...
  • A Science-Based Conservation Assessment for the Klamath-Siskiyou Ecoregion
    Our study indicated that the biological and ecological values of the Klamath-Siskiyou ecoregion can be enhanced by a conservation plan that integrates a broader set of conservation criteria than those considered in current management plans. Most strictly protected reserves in the region (e.g., wilderness areas) were established for scenic and recreational reasons and poorly represent the range of ...
  • Global Forest Restoration: A Review
    The Global 200 Strategy amitiously seeks to conserve the variety of species, ecosystems, and ecological and evolutionary processes that sustain life on earth.  Toward this end, the World Wildlife Fund hs identified over 200 ecoregions (Global 200) recognized for their high conservation priority, and calls for concentrated conservation planning in these regions.  Not surprisingly, of the wide array ...
  • Wolf Reintroduction Feasibility in the Adirondack Park
    It has been commonly reported that gray wolves (Canis lupus) as well as other predators like panthers (Felis concolor) and lynx (Lynx canadensis) once lived throughout the northeastern U.S. including what is today the Adirondack Park.  Extirpation of these summit predators closely followed European settlement (see Schneider 1997).  As a result of an active bounty system, the ...
