Managing fisheries within a RAD framework: Concepts and applications
Resisting-Accepting-Directing: Ecosystem Management Guided by an Ecological Resilience Assessment
As anthropogenic influences push ecosystems past tipping points and into new regimes, complex management decisions are complicated by rapid ecosystem changes that may be difficult to reverse. For
Review of adaptations of U.S. Commercial Fisheries in response to the COVID‐19 pandemic using the Resist‐Accept‐Direct (RAD) framework
Abstract The COVID‐19 pandemic transformed social and economic systems globally, including fisheries systems. Decreases in seafood demand, supply chain disruptions, and public safety regulations
Reducing uncertainty in climate change responses of inland fishes: A decision‐path approach
Climate change will continue to be an important consideration for conservation practitioners. However, uncertainty in identifying appropriate management strategies, particularly for understudied
Vegetation type conversion in the US Southwest: frontline observations and management responses
Background Forest and nonforest ecosystems of the western United States are experiencing major transformations in response to land-use change, climate warming, and their interactive effects with


Pervasive human-driven decline of life on Earth points to the need for transformative change
The first integrated global-scale intergovernmental assessment of the status, trends, and future of the links between people and nature provides an unprecedented picture of the extent of the authors' mutual dependence, the breadth and depth of the ongoing and impending crisis, and the interconnectedness among sectors and regions.
A portfolio approach to managing ecological risks of global change
Abstract The stressors of global environmental change make it impossible over the long term for natural systems to maintain their historical composition. Conservation's new objective must be to
Sea-Level Rise from the Late 19th to the Early 21st Century
We estimate the rise in global average sea level from satellite altimeter data for 1993–2009 and from coastal and island sea-level measurements from 1880 to 2009. For 1993–2009 and after correcting
Structured Decision-Making and Rapid Prototyping to Plan a Management Response to an Invasive Species
Abstract We developed components of a decision structure that could be used in an adaptive management framework for responding to invasion of hemlock woolly adelgid Adeleges tsugae on the Cumberland
Ocean recoveries for tomorrow’s Earth: Hitting a moving target
A synthesis of ocean-recovery goals as moving targets is provided and promising steps forward are highlighted to help to reshape recovery of marine ecosystems, yet important scientific questions and societal barriers remain.
Protecting cisco (Corego- nus artedi Leseur) oxythermal habitat from climate change: building resilience in deep lakes using a landscape approach
Cisco (Coregonus artedi Lesueur) was projected to persist in at least 171 deep, clear lakes in a climate-warmed Minnesota, U.S.A. A process-oriented, dynamic, one-dimensional yearround lake water
Emerging threats and persistent conservation challenges for freshwater biodiversity
Efforts to reverse global trends in freshwater degradation now depend on bridging an immense gap between the aspirations of conservation biologists and the accelerating rate of species endangerment.
Indicators for Monitoring Biodiversity: A Hierarchical Approach
The three primay attributes of biodiversity recognized by Jerry Franklin are expanded into a nested hierarcby that incorporates ele- ments of each attribute at four levels of organization: re- gional landscape, community-ecosystem, population- species, andgenetic.
