Abstract : The specific objectives for the Southeast Region TER-S Workshop were to: (1) assess TER-S management needs within a regional context, with an emphasis on system-level and cross-boundary approaches; (2) assess these approaches for their potential to keep common species common while recovering or enhancing TER-S populations; (3) examine the current state of the science and practice within DoD for such holistic approaches; (4) identify potential partners and existing partnership structures whose focus is, at least in part, meeting TER-S conservation objectives; (5) identify gaps in knowledge, technology, management, and partnerships that, if addressed, could improve implementation of system-level and cross-boundary approaches; and (6) prioritize investment opportunities to address these gaps. To achieve these objectives, workshop sponsors and organizers assembled a broad spectrum of discipline experts from the research and management communities, including federal and state agencies, academia, and the non-governmental conservation community.
