Enabling Climate-Informed Planning and Decisions about Species of Conservation Concern in the North Central Region: Phase 2
Changing climate conditions such as increasing droughts, floods, and wildfires, hotter temperatures, declining snowpacks, and changes in the timing of seasonal events are already having an impact on wildlife and their habitats. In order to make forward-looking management decisions that consider ongoing and future projected changes in climate, managers require access to climate information that can be easily integrated into the planning process. Co-production, a process whereby scientists work closely with managers to identify and fill knowledge gaps, is an effective means of ensuring that science results will be directly useful to managers. Through a multi-phase project, researchers are implementing co-production...
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...

On June 25, 2015 Dr. John Boone of the Great Basin Bird Observatory presented on his work evaluating species management guidance and monitoring programs for the Great Basin.Species-based wildlife management in Nevada’s Great Basin is conducted by multiple agencies using a diverse array of guidelines, protocols and information sets, many of which are outdated, incomplete or inconsistent. The first step of this project is to review the basis for species management in Nevada–focusing on a core set of avian species—to identify where opportunities for improvement exist. We then develop an array of both generalized and species-specific recommendations for more consistent and effective species management. These recommendations...
