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.

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.

Protecting Wildlife Connectivity Through Land Use Planning - Best Management Practices and the Role of Conservation Development.
Author(s): Zoe Smith, Michale Glennon, Heidi Kretser, Leslie Karasin, Sarah Reed
Year: 2013
Description/Abstract: This technical paper examines the use and application of Conservation Development in land use planning in the northeast, and reviews best management practices for ecologically-sensitive land use planning. The first chapter reviews the adoption of Conservation Development (CD) ordinances in this area; the second chapter highlights case studies of communities with CD ordinances in place; and the third chapter focuses on best management practices for protecting habitat and wildlife connectivity.

The Importance of Maine for Ecoregional Conservation Planning
Author(s): Baldwin R.F., Trombulak, S.C., Beazley, K., Reining, C., Woolmer, G., Nordgren, J. and Anderson, M.
Year: 2008
Description/Abstract: This highlights the importance of the Maine’s forests as the ecological core of the Northern Appalachian/Acadian ecoregion. Using mapping and mathematical models of the “human footprint,” the authors note that Maine has a large, contiguous, undeveloped and unfragmented forest compared with neighboring states and provinces. However, compared with its neighbors Maine also has the largest proportion of unprotected forest. The authors conclude with the hope that land use policy and planning can be better informed through the active integration of recent ecoregional conservation mapping models.
