Linking Conservation Actions with Population Viability Models: Reducing Uncertainty to Better Predict Management Effects on Viability Report uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • The overall objective of this program was to develop a set of models and methods for prioritizing management of threatened, endangered, and at-risk species.  Specifically, we sought to develop tools for evaluating effects of management on population viability using varying levels of data:  1) life history data when little is known about a species, 2) count data when only estimates of abundance through time are available, and 3) metapopulation models when we have a lot of demographic data about multiple populations.
