Linking environmental science, policy and management

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.
