Carnivores, urban landscapes, and longitudinal studies - a case history of black bears
Author(s): Jon Beckmann and Carl Lackey
Year: 2008
Description/Abstract: This study explores the impact of urban areas on the reproduction and demographics of black bears (Ursus americanus) based on research in the urban and wildland regions in the northern Sierra Nevada Mountains of Nevada, including the Lake Tahoe Basin. This work shows that urban areas act as population sinks for black bears and that urban bears of the Lake Tahoe Basin are unable to repopulate vacated wildland areas.

Conservation Planning for Climate Change Impacts to Lowland Boreal Wetlands in the Adirondack Park, NY
Author(s): Zoe Smith, Michale Glennon, Erika Rowland, and Molly Cross
Year: 2011
Description/Abstract: On November 17-18, 2010, twenty-five stakeholders from multiple agencies, organizations, and academic institutions (Appendix A) gathered for a workshop hosted by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) in Blue Mountain Lake, NY to initiate planning for the potential impacts of climate change on the lowland boreal wetlands of the Adirondack region. . WCS pre-selected the lowland boreal as a conservation target for this workshop because WCS has been monitoring and documenting changes in the boreal wetland ecosystem of the Adirondacks for decades. This report summarizes the workshop.

Conserving Caribou Landscapes in the Nahanni Trans-Border Region
Author(s): John L. Weaver
Year: 2008
Description/Abstract: The trans-border region encompassing the watershed of the legendary South Nahanni River in the Northwest Territories and adjacent areas in southeast Yukon Territory comprises some of the last, large wildlands in North America. Across these boreal forests and mountains roam woodland caribou, one of the most iconic but vulnerable wildlife species of Canada. These report examines how the two populations of woodland caribou that live in this undeveloped region utilize the land scape and provides recommendations for their protection.

Freshwater Fish in Ontario's Boreal - Status, Conservation and Potential Impacts of Development
Author(s): David R. Browne
Year: 2007
Description/Abstract: Freshwater ecosystems are among the most threatened ecosystems on the planet. Physical alteration, water withdrawal, overexploitation, pollution, and the introduction of non-native species have caused widespread habitat loss, degradation in water quality, declines in the abundance of aquatic animals, and biodiversity loss. More than 20 percent of the world’s 10,000 freshwater fish species have become threatened, endangered or extinct in recent decades.

Lynx Survey in the Adirondack Park
Author(s): John Weaver
Year: 1999
Description/Abstract: This survey attempted to determine whether there is a population of Canada lynx within the area around the High Peaks region of the Adirondacks.  The survey methodology involved a non-invasive technique capitalizing on the natural cheek-rubbing behavior of cats for hair collection and DNA analysis.  This was a follow-up survey to the release of 83 translocated lynx by a team of biologists from SUNY ESF in the late 1980's.

Montana, the Last Best Place - Maintaining wildlife and private lands in the Big Sky
Author(s): Heidi Kretser
Year: 2010
Description/Abstract: This survey addresses private landowners’ attitudes toward wildlife, planning and land use in the Big Sky, Montana. This is an independent research effort not connected to the county planning office or any on-going land- use planning efforts. However, the results will be provided to those working in the region and may be used to inform development and wildlife conservation efforts on private lands.
