Case Study in Conservation Decisions

In this document, Downocean Strategies (DS) documents several real-world scenarios for which the Fish Habitat Mapping and Monitoring Support Tool has been utilized to prioritize areas for conservation actions.

Each case study describes the problem or question posed to DS by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the methods DS used to answer the question, and the resulting priority areas.

The first six scenarios deal with the Florida Bay brook trout model while the final scenario focuses on the Great Plains Fish Habitat Assessment.
