Investigating alternative land use/habitat conservation strategies using GIS and optimization modeling (Extended)

Principal Investigators:

Michael Gilpin, Richard L. Church, Ross Gerrard, and Peter A. Stine

This proposal is for a continuation of an NCEAS working group for an additional twelve months beginning October 1, 1997, including postdoctoral support for the current postdoctoral researcher Ross Gerrard. The subject of our research is the development of an innovative optimization modeling approach to selecting lands to set aside for habitat conservation. Our data and pilot study come from the eastern parts of Contra Costa and Alameda Counties in Northern California, a region that encapsulates state-wide and nation-wide issues of finding alternatives... more
