Site Prioritization in Klamath-Cascade Region using GIS

by Fang, Yi-Chin

Abstract (Summary)
Several papers have pointed out the need to focus more on conservation planning on private lands. However, there are only a few strategies for private land conservation (Newburn et al. 2005). In most cases, field surveys have been used to understand certain species’ populations and distributions in private lands. Lunney et al. (2000) used community and field surveys to map koala habitat in private lands. Cox and Engstrom (2001) conducted a field survey to analyze the influence of land ownership on the survival rate of the red-cockaded woodpecker. My project focuses on developing effective methods to prioritize spending for private land conservation program at the parcel level. The methodology that I have developed can be adapted to a variety of land types.
