Linking environmental science, policy and management
- Improving the links between ecological science, environmental management, and environmental policy.
California Ecosystem Management Database
Why does one management project succeed, while another does not? Which sites are most (or least) likely to achieve a management goal? What suite of goals are possible at a given site, and which management practices will be most effective in achieving the goals at that site? Addressing these questions requires the compilation of hundreds of on-the-ground management trials and research trials across California’s diverse environmental conditions. This searchable database is an in-progress project that is compiling the wisdom of current and previous management and research trials, to provide decision-support for managers and policy makers.
