NATURAL DISTURBANCE REGIMES AS A GUIDE FOR SUSTAINABLE FOREST MANAGEMENT
We bring together knowledge on natural disturbances (fire, insects, wind-throw) with the objective of proposing reference conditions for ecosystem-based sustainable forest management.
HABITAT AND ECOSYSTEM CONNECTIVITY ANALYSIS
We have considerable experience in evaluating the connectivity of species habitat and high conservation value ecosysystems. Through this analysis, we can help to evaluate the relative significance of habitat and high conservation value ecosystems within a landscape in support of conservation planning and protected area network design.
OPTIMIZATION OF PROTECTED AREA NETWORKS AND LAND-USE ZONING
Based on a foundation of biodiversity, species conservation, economic, and social values, we apply optimization methods to help develop proposals for protected area networks and land-use zoning.
