Managing natural areas: How do we select among land management options?

Principal Investigators:

Cheryl B. Schultz

Land management will be a pivotal conservation issue in the coming decades as we begin to face the mounting problems of how to manage land that has recently been set aside in parks and reserves. Whereas much ecological theory has been applied to reserve design and reserve siting (island biogeography, e.g. Williams 1984; viability models, e.g. Armbruster and Lande 1993; metapopulation models, e.g. McCollough 1996), virtually no theory has been applied to ¿reserve management.¿

I propose to seek generalizations from two standpoints:... more
