US protected lands mismatch biodiversity priorities

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 112, No. 16. (21 April 2015), pp. 5081-5086, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1418034112

Abstract

[Significance] The United States has one of the oldest and most sophisticated systems of protected areas in the world. Given the large amount of information on the country’s biodiversity, and the potential resources available, one might expect it to do well in protecting biodiversity. We find that it does not. The United States protected areas do not adequately cover the country’s unique species. To improve the coverage, we map priorities for multiple taxa and recommend specific areas for immediate conservation attention. These ...

 

Strengthening protected areas for biodiversity and ecosystem services in China

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 114, No. 7. (14 February 2017), pp. 1601-1606, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1620503114

Abstract

[Significance] Following severe environmental degradation from rapid economic development, China is now advancing policies to secure biodiversity and ecosystem services. We report the first nationwide assessment, showing that protected areas (PAs) are not well delineated to protect either biodiversity or key ecosystem services. This serious deficiency exists in many countries. We propose creating a national park system in China to help guide development along a path of green growth, improving the well-being of both people and nature. This involves establishing new, strictly ...

 

Climate change, habitat loss, protected areas and the climate adaptation potential of species in Mediterranean ecosystems worldwide

  
PLOS ONE, Vol. 4, No. 7. (29 July 2009), e6392, https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0006392

Abstract

Mediterranean climate is found on five continents and supports five global biodiversity hotspots. Based on combined downscaled results from 23 atmosphere-ocean general circulation models (AOGCMs) for three emissions scenarios, we determined the projected spatial shifts in the mediterranean climate extent (MCE) over the next century. Although most AOGCMs project a moderate expansion in the global MCE, regional impacts are large and uneven. The median AOGCM simulation output for the three emissions scenarios project the MCE at the end of the 21st ...

Abstract

Along with high degree of vascular plant endemism (more than 25%) the existence of two refugia of the Tertiary flora – Colchic and Hyrcanian – are the most unique features of the Caucasus ecoregion. Likewise, Colchic and Hyrcanian forests are classified as temperate rainforests.There are certain physical-geographical and biological similarities and even more differences between Colchic and Hyrcanian regions, reflected on compositions of flora, types of vegetation zonation, as well as spectrums of vegetation formations. An “individualities” of these two unique nature phenomena definethe necessity of their ...

The future of the Brazilian Amazon

  
Science, Vol. 291, No. 5503. (19 January 2001), pp. 438-439, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.291.5503.438

Abstract

The Brazilian Amazon is currently experiencing the world's highest absolute rate of forest destruction and is likely to suffer even greater degradation in the future because of government plans to invest $40 billion from 2000 to 2007 in dozens of major new highways and infrastructure projects. We developed two computer models that integrate spatial data on deforestation, logging, mining, highways and roads, navigable rivers, vulnerability to wildfires, protected areas, and existing and planned infrastructure projects, in an effort to predict the ...

Abstract

Al fine di meglio comprendere i risultati ottenuti con la realizzazione del Manuale italiano d’interpretazione si ritiene opportuno evidenziarne gli obiettivi e riprendere gli aspetti più significativi della metodologia adottata. Obiettivi Con il Manuale si è cercato di realizzare uno strumento tecnico-scientifico di riferimento per l’Italia sia in ambito nazionale (confronti tra Regioni) che internazionale (rapporti con gli organismi tecnico-amministrativi dell’UE e con gli altri Stati membri). Il Manuale intende quindi: fornire un’interpretazione la più possibile condivisa dai maggiori esperti nazionali ...

 

Running Pure: The importance of forest protected areas to drinking water

  
(2003)

Abstract

[Executive summary] [::Well managed natural forests provide benefits to urban populations in terms of high quality drinking water] [::] Well managed natural forests almost always provide higher quality water, with less sediment and fewer pollutants, than water from other catchments [::] Some natural forests (particularly tropical montane cloud forests and some older forests) also increase total water flow, although in other cases this is not true and under young forests and some exotic plantations net water flow can decrease [::] Impacts of forests on security of supply or mitigating ...

 

Occurrence of the silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) butt rot in protected areas

  
Forest Research Papers, Vol. 75, No. 4. (4 January 2015), pp. 343-352, https://doi.org/10.2478/frp-2014-0031

Abstract

The aim of the study was to analyse butt rot incidences in silver fir stands of selected nature reserves and national parks. The study included 11 stands in Carpathian forests and for comparison 4 stands outside the Carpathians. To identify butt rot in fir trees, we used the non-invasive method of acoustic tomography. We tested 30 randomly selected fir trees in each of the 15 stands using Picus Sonic tomography to determine butt rot occurrence and to assess the proportion (%) ...

Matching and mechanisms in protected area and poverty alleviation research

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 111, No. 11. (18 March 2014), pp. 3909-3910, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1401327111

Abstract

[excerpt] Excitement among social scientists about the discovery of randomized controlled trials has been tempered by the recognition that experimental research and related designs may be infeasible, prohibitively expensive, or even unsuitable for an enormous range of questions of interest to social science and policy (1⇓–3). Recourse to matching-based statistical approaches can enable more transparent causal inference with observational data. The recent upsurge in environmental science writings that use matching techniques borrows from a long and continuing history of such use ...

 

Quantifying causal mechanisms to determine how protected areas affect poverty through changes in ecosystem services and infrastructure

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 111, No. 11. (18 March 2014), pp. 4332-4337, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1307712111

Abstract

[Significance] Scholars are accumulating evidence about the effects of environmental programs on social outcomes. Quantifying these effects is important, but to design better programs we need to understand how these effects arise. Little is known about the mechanisms through which ecosystem conservation programs affect human welfare. Our study demonstrates that, with existing data and appropriate empirical designs, scientists and policymakers can elucidate these previously unidentified mechanisms. We estimate how Costa Rica’s protected area system reduced poverty in neighboring communities. Nearly two-thirds ...

 

Dynamic reserve site selection under contagion risk of deforestation

  
Ecological Modelling In Management, Control and Decision Making for Ecological Systems, Vol. 201, No. 1. (10 February 2007), pp. 75-81, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecolmodel.2006.07.036

Abstract

Recently, dynamic reserve site selection models based on stochastic dynamic programming (SDP) have been proposed. The models consider a random development pattern in which the probability that a site will be developed is independent of the development status of other sites. However, development often takes the form of a contagion process in which the sites most likely to be developed are near sites that already have been developed. To consider site selections in such cases, we propose improved algorithms that make ...

 

Achieving the Convention on Biological Diversity’s goals for plant conservation

  
Science, Vol. 341, No. 6150. (6 September 2013), pp. 1100-1103, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.1241706

Abstract

[Editor's Summary]: The Convention on Biological Diversity's 20 Aichi Targets, agreed in October 2010, extend to 2020 an international commitment to halt the loss of biodiversity. Using data from “The Plant List” (www.theplantlist.org), Joppa et al. (p. 1100), show that ∼65% of plant species are endemic to 17% of the terrestrial land surface and include many islands, with mainland contributions concentrated heavily in central and southern America and Asia. These regions include 75% of all plant species. These regions are also ...
