The Center's ongoing projects in support of science for decision making include field studies, cooperative agreements, books, articles, and conferences.
2016 International conference: A Community on Ecosystem Services (ACES)
- SDC staff are participating on the conference planning and progam committee for its 5th biannual conference, which is scheduled for December 2016. SDC Staff has played a lead role in the planning of the past four international ACES conference on ecosystem services, which has taken place in 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014.
DOI Adaptive Management Applications Guide
- In partnership with the DOI Adaptive Management Working Group, SDC staff led development and production of anadaptive management applications guide for DOI, which builds on the DOI Adaptive Management Technical Guide in providing guidance for the application of adaptive management. Together these documents present a framework for adaptive management, a discussion of technical and implementation issues, and examples of adaptive decision making in the themes of water resources, energy, climate change, and the interface between human and natural systems. The applications guide was released in April 2012.
Science for DOI Landscape Conservation Cooperatives
- SDC Staff are participating in science projects designed to meet DOI Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) management needs. Examples include a partnership between the USGS Western Geographic Science Center and SDC staff to model climate and land-use change scenarios for management decision making in the California LCC. For the Appalachian LCC, SDC staff are participating in planning efforts to design the LCC’s science strategy.
