Northeast Conservation Status Report April 2011
From their website: The Nature Conservancy’s Eastern Conservation Science office, with funding from the Northeast Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, is pleased to release a benchmark report summarizing the results of a comprehensive three-year assessment of animal species and natural habitats across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region.
In an effort to evaluate the gains of a century of conservation and take the pulse of the natural world, scientists synthesized information from over 30 sources, including State Natural Heritage Programs, US Forest Inventory and Analysis, the Breeding Bird Survey, State Wildlife Action Plans and the Conservancy’s Regional Science Center.
Based on the recommendations of the Northeast Performance and Indicator Framework, this technical report evaluates key indicators for six natural habitats: forest, wetlands, rivers and stream, unique habitats, lakes and ponds and animal species of concern. For the report CLICK HERE.
When will there be a Northeast Association of Botanical Agencies to fund the same studies on plant species of concern?
