Prior to the exercise, participants were provided with (gnlcc_framework_final_small.pdf, GNLCC_Priorities_Crosswalk_Exercise1_Goals_Stressors_Targets_1-12-16b.pptx) which includes the guidance from the Steering Committee (Fall 2015 meeting, Missoula) to “narrow GNLCC priorities” through an “improved process focusing on needs and outcomes”. Staff initiated a process to cross-walk sets of GNLCC principles (e.g., Goals, Stressors, Targets) to parse and refine the potential array of priorities (see .pptx for more detail). The process included a series of polls conducted in real time during a live Adobe Connect session. Participants were given time to support their choices using text-based chat boxes and phone connections....

The purpose of this strategic conservation framework is to articulate the rationale, approach, and priorities for the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GNLCC) that reflects the unique geography and regional natural resource issues. The information presented in this document is summarized from background research on existing landscape initiatives (place-, issue-, or species-based) and other regionally summarized ecological and landscape information relevant to the Great Northern geography. The conservation targets identified in this document are based on research with conservation partners and ongoing landscape-scaled initiatives. We collected and reviewed over 50 documents that may be relevant...

The Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GNLCC) encompasses over 280 million acres, includes parts of 6 states and 2 Canadian provinces, and must address issues that overlap with over 30 management and research entities. The data management framework will include options to deal with very large datasets as well as treatment of local data collection and project tracking efforts. The goal of the Landscape Conservation Cooperative process is to help resource managers address landscape-scale stressors. The issues facing these managers include habitat fragmentation, genetic isolation, spread of invasive species, and water scarcity, as well as how these issues are accelerated by climate change. Addressing...

This document is a Template for a Data Management Plan (DMP). DMPs are required for all science projects funded by Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative. Completed DMPs will be stored in each project's Community under LC MAP/Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative/GNLCC Supported Science. Because DMPs are intended to be dynamic and likly to evolve over the course of a science project, multiple versions may be created for any project. PI's can download this version to use as a Template for their individual submission. From the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative Information Management, Delivery, and Sharing Standards (Revised FY15; GNLCC_DataMgt_Sharing_policy_FY15_9-23-15.pdf):...

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
