Mathematical Methods for Identifying Representative Reserve Networks
We focus on a particular class of reserve design problem where the goal is to achieve some minimum representation of biodiversity features for the smallest possible cost.
Drought Sensitivity of the Amazon Rainforest
TLDR
Records from multiple long-term monitoring plots across Amazonia are used to assess forest responses to the intense 2005 drought, a possible analog of future events that may accelerate climate change through carbon losses and changed surface energy balances.
Effectiveness of the global protected area network in representing species diversity
TLDR
It is shown that the global network of protected areas is far from complete, and the inadequacy of uniform—that is, ‘one size fits all’—conservation targets is demonstrated, in the first global gap analysis assessing the effectiveness ofprotected areas in representing species diversity.
Protected area needs in a changing climate
Range shifts due to climate change may cause species to move out of protected areas. Climate change could therefore result in species range dynamics that reduce the relevance of current fixed
ECOLOGICAL CRITERIA FOR EVALUATING CANDIDATE SITES FOR MARINE RESERVES
Several schemes have been developed to help select the locations of marine reserves. All of them combine social, economic, and biological criteria, and few offer any guidance as to how to prioritize
COMPARING MARINE AND TERRESTRIAL ECOSYSTEMS: IMPLICATIONS FOR THE DESIGN OF COASTAL MARINE RESERVES
Concepts and theory for the design and application of terrestrial reserves is based on our understanding of environmental, ecological, and evolutionary processes re- sponsible for biological
Population models for marine reserve design: A retrospective and prospective synthesis
TLDR
Model results indicate that marine reserves could play a beneficial role in the protection of marine systems against overfishing and further modeling and analysis will greatly improve prospects for a better understanding of the potential of marine reserves for conserving biodiversity.
Global Gap Analysis: Priority Regions for Expanding the Global Protected-Area Network
Abstract Protected areas are the single most important conservation tool. The global protected-area network has grown substantially in recent decades, now occupying 11.5% of Earth's land surface, but
PLUGGING A HOLE IN THE OCEAN: THE EMERGING SCIENCE OF MARINE RESERVES1
TLDR
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as to provide real-time information about the response of the immune system to infectious disease and other infectious diseases.
