The Importance of Maine for Ecoregional Conservation Planning (2007)
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 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.
Carnivore Restoration in the Northeastern U.S. and Southeastern Canada – A Regional- Scale Analysis of Habitat and Population Viability for Wolf, Lynx, and Marten (Report 2 – Lynx and Marten Viability Analysis) (2005)
This paper develops a comprehensive analysis of habitat, population viability, and conservation needs for the American marten (Martes americana) and lynx (Lynx canadensis)in the Northern Appalachians region of the northeastern U.S. and southeastern Canada.
Impacts of Landscape Change on Wolf Viability in the Northeastern U.S. and Southeastern Canada – Implications for Wolf Recovery (2003)
