Prospectus: Optimizing Protected Areas For Conservation, September 2001
By David Halsing and Richard Bernknopf
This Open-File Report
is being submitted in accordance with Geographic Research and Applications
(GRA) Prospectus guidelines. It is intended to be a report on the research
activities and progress made in the third and fourth quarters of fiscal
year (FY) 2001, an extension of the literature review in the March 2001
Open-File Report, and an outline of the next steps that will be taken
in the project. This report is organized in eight sections. Section 1
gives a general update and describes the progress made by our collaborators
and research partners. Section 2 reviews important literature found since
the last report and explains how we intend to use it. Sections 3 through
6 describe major project stages and the research products that are being
developed for each of them. In each section, we first report achievements
and then outline the next steps for each project stage. Section 7 elaborates
on the framework for the Land Use Portfolio Model that was developed for
the previous Open-File Report. Section 8 contains the references for this
paper and other selected references.
