Energy sprawl and wildlife conservation

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

    Abstract

    North American wildlife conservation in the twentieth century often progressed under the implicit assumption that full recovery and conservation of species was possible. In the twenty-first century, society’s increased energy demands are a wake-up call to facilitate conservation in the face of massive new development objectives. These two case studies from the sagebrush and boreal ecosystems of North America illustrate the benefits of proactive, rather than retrospective, conservation planning using triage frameworks.
