My tweetentation (presentation via tweets) for the Inaugural @ARC_CEED Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions Twitter Conference #CEEDTC2018. To view on Twitter click here. @kerenraiter
Abstract: We’re using emerging information on species distribution, dispersal & genetic variation combined with insights into varying effects of different land management – incl. ecological traps, to provide cross-tenure decision support for ensuring endangered lizard persistence.
#CEEDTC2018 Integrating population viability & complex threatening processes such as ecological traps, into systematic conservation planning can improve the effectiveness of conservation plans, and encourage land manager engagement @HebrewU: Dror Hawlena Risk Management Lab.
#CEEDTC2018 We explore the challenges of conservation planning in the face of complex realities for critically endangered Israeli fringe-fingered lizards: we modelled species distribution and show devastating historical habitat loss followed by threats of a new sort…
#CEEDTC2018 ‘Desert tree’ projects create ecological traps: habitats that lizards quickly colonize, but where the lizards are quickly predated due to trees providing perches for predatory birds. A relatively small area of ‘trap’ can drain lizards from the surrounding landscape
Finishing with a note from Kerrie Wilson, Director of CEED, about the conference trending in Twitter – it topped the Australian chart.
