Drafting a conservation blueprint: A practitioner's guide to regional planning for biodiversity
- Craig Groves
|Sabbatical Fellow||1st January—30th May 2001||Participant List|
From July 2000 through June 2001, I will be on sabbatical from my position as Director of Conservation Planning with the Conservation Science Division of The Nature Conservancy (TNC). This sabbatical is being funded by a Guggenheim Fellowship and by funds from TNC. During the sabbatical period, I will be writing a book on large-scale conservation planning. This book will be an expansion of a two-volume handbook that we recently published in TNC - Designing a Geography of Hope: A Practitioner's Handbook to Ecoregional Conservation Planning. I also plan to write at least two different papers for peer-reviewed journal on the ecoregional and large-scale planning methods of TNC. I have requested to spend January through May 2001 at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis. I will be using this time primarily for writing on the book project and analyzing data from both ecoregional plans of TNC as well as other large-scale conservation plans from other institutions and organizations. At NCEAS and UCSB, I will be able to interact with colleagues who have similarly been involved in large-scale planning projects (Dr. Sandy Andelman, Dr. Frank Davis, Dr. David Stoms, graduate student Mike Jennings of Gap Analysis, and others), participate in seminars and perhaps a NCEAS work group (have not discussed with Dr. Andelman yet), utilize the library facilities, and conduct some work in the GIS lab at UCSB.
