Evaluating Species Management Guidance and Monitoring Programs for the Great Basin in Nevada

Project Overview

The project builds on recent, well-researched species conservation plans for Nevada (GBBO 2010, NWPT 2012) and research on scientifically based disturbance buffer recommendations to evaluate GBBO’s statewide landbird monitoring program, the Nevada Bird Count.

This project will create an online open-source compendium document that will provide a scientific review of:

  • Current priority species management practices in Nevada
  • Status of our combined scientific knowledge of priority species’ needs and gaps in that knowledge
  • Adequacy of current monitoring programs of priority species.
