FY2013The proposed project’s objective is to provide a scientific review of
(1) current priority species management practices in Nevada, (2) status of our combined scientific knowledge of priority species’ needs and gaps in that knowledge, and(3) adequacy of current monitoring programs of priority species.
The project builds on recent, well-researched species conservation plans for Nevada (GBBO 2010, NWPT 2012), and it will leverage funds that are already obligated to research on scientifically based disturbance buffer recommendations and to evaluate GBBO’s statewide landbird monitoring program, the Nevada Bird Count.
The outcome of the proposed work will be an online open-source compendium document that summarizes the current knowledge on the value of different species management practices, important gaps in knowledge about priority species, and current status of monitoring coverage.
