Abstract:

The process of natural resource management and planning begins with a thorough inventory and description of a natural systems flora and fauna. This information is critical for the development and implementation of effective integrated natural resource management plans. Such plans, in turn, allow land managers, such as the U.S. Department of Defense, to maintain biodiversity, conserve natural resources, and comply with applicable environmental laws and regulations in concert with mission requirements. Advanced biotelemetry capabilities that incorporate the latest innovations in microelectronics, GIS, remote sensing, and computer modeling offer great promise in helping to define and characterize human effects on species and ecological communities and to identify strategies to ensure their sustain ability in the face of expanding human enterprise.
