Vegetation Community
Vegetation Monitoring Methods - Part 2


Project description

A new phase of this work began in 2010. After several years focused on data collection and analysis, work on closing the feedback loop as envisioned in Atkinson et al. 2004 is taking place. Work involved a wide array of stakeholders to revise and update the goals and objectives the monitoring and management plans, develop conceptual models for individual preserves, and adapt and apply management plans on individual preserves. One aspect of this work was a structured workshop. The workshop, based on the Dahlem model, was the first concrete step in facilitating collaborative decision making.
