  • Over the last three decades a great deal of research, money, and effort have been put into the devel- opment of theory and techniques designed to make conservation more efficient. Much of the recent emphasis has been on methods to identify areas of high conservation interest and to design efficient networks of na- ture reserves. Reserve selection algorithms, gap analysis, and other computerized approaches have much po- tential to transform conservation planning, yet these methods are used only… CONTINUE READING
