The dark green and yellow show the study area for this project; the yellow is the area also covered by the West Kootenay Ecosystem Vulnerability and Resilience Project see other web page. Associated work is ongoing in the Southern Rockies region, identified in light green.

Approach The project applies both coarse and fine filter approaches in identifying critical features for inclusion in the conservation design. The coarse filter approach includes the identification of critical landscape features e. The fine filter approach is based on habitat mapping for two umbrella species, grizzly bear and mountain caribou, as well as consideration of other key habitats such as high value ungulate winter ranges.
To initiate the work, maps of current land use zoning were combined with habitat mapping for key species and examined to identify potential additions to the current conservation network. Scientists and knowledgeable local residents familiar with the study area were consulted on an ongoing basis to gather unmapped information on conservation values, and to identify additional prospective reserves, conservation areas and linkage zones based on their local knowledge.

With the growing recognition of climate change as a potential driver for range shifts in a host of species, there has been renewed emphasis on managing for connectivity at multiple scales as a necessary element of climate change adaptation. Maintaining or increasing connectivity is the most widely recommended climate change adaptation measure for biodiversity, but specific recommendations for identification and management of linkage zones has been lacking.
The recommended management guidelines for linkage zones aim to address this gap. Representation targets for this project have been set to reflect current scientific thinking on conservation needs in a time of rapid climate change. In a recent editorial in Conservation Biology, Noss et al. Because many species assemblages and ecosystems are expected to disaggregate under new climate regimes, it has been recommended to define assessment units based on environmental factors that will remain relatively constant as climate change proceeds i.
Macro topography plays a key role in determining the distribution of climate envelopes in BC, and will remain a relatively constant factor for the time scales under consideration decades and centuries , hence the choice of topography for defining the Regional Landscapes. Products Draft products for the various project sub-areas will be posted to this website as they become available.

Reflecting a new generation of conservation biologists' upper-division and graduate level conservation biology courses, as well as for individual reference, this book incorporates a number of new authors and additional chapters, covering all aspects of one of the most dynamic areas in the life sciences. Containing ten additional chapters, it includes such timely topics as ecosystem management and the economics of conservation.
Prologue: the next generation. Part one. Savings species through population biology and viability analyses: a morass, math, myth and mistakes? Part two: broad brushes and taxonomic tours: summaries of the state of the natural world. Part three: habitat degradation and ecological restoration: hubris, hegemony, and healing.
Part four: when conservation meets the real world of economics, politics, and tradeoffs. Part five: the new technologies and novel perspectives for the new generation of conservation biology. Customer Reviews Average Review.
