Decision Support Tool: Science and Adaptive Management in a National Monument
Using science to preserve biological diversity and improve habitat in the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument: Birds as indicators in adaptive management
The Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument was the first U.S. National Monument set aside specifically for preservation of biodiversity. Using science to preserve biological diversity and improve habitat in the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument highlights studies from scientists and PIF partners, framed as an adaptive management story of the Monument, its expansion, and the science which demonstrated that removing livestock grazing benefited bird species. The four-page document is intended for managers, conservation resource professionals, and anyone else that is interested in how science can be used to make decisions that incorporate bird and habitat conservation objectives.
