This report describes the results of a research initiative launched by 2C1Forest to identify irreplaceable and vulnerable locations in the Northern Appalachian/Acadian ecoregion for the purpose of identifying priority locations for conservation action.
This editorial identifies the primary cause of conservation failure in eastern United States as a lack of a nationally funded land-conservation policy that recognizes changing land-use economics.
Relationship between Spatial Distribution of Urban Sprawl and Species Imperilment – Response to Brown and Laband (2007)
This comment responds to a study which concluded that spatial distribution of human activity is not related to species imperilment in the United States.
Based on mapping and mathematical models of the “human footprint”, this article suggests that Maine’s forests are the ecological core of the entire Northern Appalachian/Acadian ecoregion.
Interacting effects of climate change, landscape conversion, and harvest on carnivore populations at the range margin – marten and lynx in the Northern Appalachians (2007)
This article moves beyond simple bioclimatic models of climate change to assess potential effects of predicted changes in snowfall by 2055 on marten and lynx populations in the Northern Appalachians.
Projecting transition probabilities for regular public roads at the ecoregion scale – A Northern Appalachian Acadian case study (2006)
This paper projects the spatial probability of future roads in the Northern Appalachian/Acadian ecoregion as a critical component of conservation planning.
From the Adirondacks to Acadia – A Wildlands Network Design for the Greater Northern Appalachians (2006)
This study examines a conservation approach designed to identify a network of areas of high conservation priority within the Northern Appalachian/Acadian and St. Lawrence/Champlain Valley ecoregions of the northeastern United States and southeastern Canada.
This article presents an updated map of forest regions to E. Lucy Braun’s 1950 classification, using a data set from an extensive network of contemporary forest plots.
This report measures and summarizes the status of Nature Conservation in the Northern Appalachian / Acadian Ecoregion in 2006.
Two Countries, One Forest – Deux Pays, Une Forêt – Launching a landscape-scale conservation collaborative in the Northern Appalachian region of the United States and Canada (2005)
This article examines how 50 scientists, conservationists, and funders have targeted landscape-scale conservation and worked together over the past three years to launch a transborder conservation collaborative in the 80-million-acre Northern Appalachian region of the eastern United States and Canada.
