Title: Sound solutions for habitat monitoring

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: For agencies and organizations to effectively manage wildlife, knowledge about the status and trend of wildlife habitat is critical. Traditional wildlife monitoring, however, has focused on populations rather than habitat, because ultimately population status drives long-term species viability. Still, habitat loss has contributed to the decline of nearly all at-risk species (Swift and Hannon 2010) and, as a result, monitoring the amount and quality of habitat can guide recovery efforts for wildlife species with declining trends such as greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) or the northern long-eared bat (Myotis septentrionalis).

Keywords: emphasis species, habitat monitoring, land use planning, monitoring protocols, multi-scalar, techniques, wildlife
