Adaptive Management

The SDMMP is providing support to land managers in San Diego County to design and implement adaptive management (refer to Atkinson et al. [688KB PDF]) projects that benefit at risk species and their habitats. The SDMMP is collaborating with the San Diego State University's Institute for Ecological Management and Monitoring (IEMM) headed by Drs. Rebecca Lewison and Douglas Deutschman. The SDMMP and IEMM are meeting with land managers regularly to discuss and coordinate land management issues that occur across the conservation areas. Examples of these issues include native species recovery, invasive species removal, habitat restoration, and public access.

It includes categorization of threats and stressors based on spatial scale and includes thoughts on how to organize monitoring efforts to improve results and efficiency.
