Planning & Management of Multi-Use Landscapes

Methods of spatial planning for multi-use landscapes include optimization, suitability analysis, scenario building, and general land use change models. We use these methods to identify and evaluate complex trade-offs between land use, biodiversity, greenhouse gas fluxes, and water quantity and quality.

 CURRENT PROJECTS:

  • Second-generation bioenergy feedstock production landscapes
  • Conservation of biodiversity in tropical production forest through improved forest management
  • Tools for a changing landscape: understanding disturbance and vegetation dynamics in northern California oak woodlands
  • Development of new geospatial tools for wildland fire management and risk reduction
