Salmonid population viability project: developing decision-support tools to improve at-rick trout population management


Decisions regarding the allocation of scarce resources are integral to the management of imperiled species. Managers need to determine what restoration activities will have the most benefit, where reintroductions are most feasible, and when to cease interventions in locations where persistence is highly unlikely. For many imperiled taxa, these kinds of decisions are made without the benefit of the most essential information: quantitative estimates of population viability. The goal of this project is to improve decision making for imperiled species by developing and applying novel methods of population viability analysis (PVA) that use all available field data and can be applied even for populations with limited information.  Webinar speakers are: Helen Neville, Trout Unlimited, and Jon Sjoberg, Nevada Department of Wildlife
