Identifying impediments to long-distance mammal migrations
Author(s): Seidler, R.G., Long, R.A., Berger, J., Bergen, S., and J.P. Beckmann
Year: 2014
Description/Abstract: In much of the world, the persistence of long-distance migrations by mammals is threatened by development. Even where human population density is relatively low, there are roads, fencing, and energy development that present barriers to animal movement. In order to conserve species that rely on long-distance migration, it is critical to identify existing migration impediments. This paper applies movement models to high-frequency locations of pronghorn (Antilocapra americana) in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem to describe the stopover sites associated with anthropogenic development. The findings demonstrate the importance of minimizing development in migration corridors in the future and of mitigating existing pressure on migratory animals by removing barriers, reducing the development footprint, or installing crossing structures.

Optimism and challenge for science-based conservation of migratory species in and out of U.S. national parks
Author(s): Berger, J., Cain, S.L., Cheng, E., Dratch, P., Ellison, K., Francis, J., Frost, H.C., Gende, S., Groves, C., Karesh, W.A., Leslie, E., Machlis, G., Medellin, R.A., Noss, R.F., Redford, K.H., Soukup, M., Wilcove, D., and S. Zack
Year: 2014
Description/Abstract: Public agencies sometimes seek outside guidance when capacity to achieve their mission is limited. In 2008, the U.S. National Park Service (NPS) sought help from outside researchers while developing an action plan to conserve aerial, marine, and terrestrial populations of migrating wildlife. Although migration is an ecological process central to maintaining biological diversity, addressing NPS’s request required these individuals to consider attitudes and behaviors of individuals, society, and agencies. The questions, challenges, and potential solutions they present are relevant to many agencies other than NPS in which natural resource managers must grapple with extensive movements and migration of wild animals.

Moving beyond science to protect a mammalian migration corridor
Author(s): Berger, J. and S.L. Cain
Year: 2014
Description/Abstract: As the discipline of conservation biology evolves and practitioners grow increasingly concerned about how to put results into achievable conservation, it is still unclear the extent to which science drives conservation outcomes, especially across rural landscapes. This paper examines the role of science in the protection of a biological corridor for the pronghorn (Antilocapra americana) of the southern Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

Protecting Wildlife Connectivity Through Land Use Planning - Best Management Practices and the Role of Conservation Development.
Author(s): Zoe Smith, Michale Glennon, Heidi Kretser, Leslie Karasin, Sarah Reed
Year: 2013
Description/Abstract: This technical paper examines the use and application of Conservation Development in land use planning in the northeast, and reviews best management practices for ecologically-sensitive land use planning. The first chapter reviews the adoption of Conservation Development (CD) ordinances in this area; the second chapter highlights case studies of communities with CD ordinances in place; and the third chapter focuses on best management practices for protecting habitat and wildlife connectivity.
