New Publication: Prioritizing Areas for Land Conservation and Forest Management Planning for the Threatened Canada Warbler in the Atlantic Northern Forest
In February 2020, we published our work identifying priority regions for Canada Warbler conservation and forest management in BCR 14. We developed seven conservation planning scenarios to prioritize candidate areas for permanent land conservation or responsible forest management. We found that using low natal dispersal distance scenarios in decision-making offers a more conservative approach to maintaining Canada Warbler populations. This prioritization approach provides a toolkit for managers to immediately locate areas for implementing conservation and management actions. This work was published in Diversity and was a collaborative effort with Environment & Climate Change Canada (ECCC), and High Branch Conservation Services, with support from Nature Canada and the Canada Warbler International Conservation Initiative.
