Abstract:

Develop methods to identify optimal management for metapopulations of sensitive species occurring in highly fragmented landscapes where subpopulations may be isolated and not functioning as true metapopulations. Use the best available data or data that can be assembled within a short period of time so that options are not foreclosed by land use conversion before decisions can be made. This project will help sustain military missions by linking habitat preservation and management on and off military installations so that species persistence can be maximized and the Department of Defenses DoDs proportion of the responsibility for management does not increase over time.
