Presentations from Fall 2012 workshops:

The following presentations are from a series of one-day workshops that the Oregon/Washington Chapter of PIF hosted during the fall of 2012. Workshop content varied to some degree among the locations with case studies being based largely on sagebrush habitats in Bend and Wenatchee, and on conifer forests and oak woodlands in Olympia and Roseburg.

This presentation explores the reasons we are concerned about incorporating birds into land management planning with an emphasis on regulatory elements
Lists demystified! This presentation explains how different approaches to developing species lists can have very different outcomes.
An overview of the Partners in Flight conservation paradigm and tools
An introduction to Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs)
New models have been developed for species distribution and abundance within portions of the North Pacific LCC. In addition, various scenarios of climate change were modeled to generate maps of future distribution and abundance.
Science delivery by the IWJV including an overview of the HabPops tool
An overview of sagebrush habitats, the new bird habitat reference guide developed by PIF, and information on bird responses to western juniper management and fire in mountain big sagebrush communities.
An example of how STMs can be used in conjunction with wildlife data to facilitate planning and evaluate management options
Information on oak associated birds and resources available
An overview of birds in west-side conifer habitats with information on available resources.
An example of how the PIF landbird conservation plans were used to facilitate management decision making at Klamath Marsh NWR.
The talk that brings it all together - an example of how PIF focal species and Birds of Conservation Concern can fit into land management planning.
