Reed F. Noss

"The focus of Dr. Noss’s research program for the last two decades has been on systematic conservation planning at regional to continental scales. He has designed and directed such studies in Florida, the Pacific Northwest, California, the Rocky Mountains, and several regions of Canada, and has been an advisor to similar projects throughout North America and parts of Latin America and Europe. This work seeks to identify areas requiring protection from development and to devise management policies, approaches, and techniques that will maintain the biodiversity and ecological values of these areas and entire landscapes over time. Such planning focuses on several levels of biological organization, depending on available data, and includes field research and population modeling of imperiled taxa and other focal species. Predictions from ecological theory and population models can be used to test the ability of alternative reserve designs and management practices to maintain populations of focal species over time."
