Adaptive Management

Systematic Observations provide us with much of the information that we need in management, but can be expensive.

This week we’ve had lectures by Prof. Emer. Kjell Danell, who’s come in to talk to us about how adaptive management has been introduced into the Swedish Wildlife Management system (primarily Moose & Salmon). He’s also held workshops with us in implementing a learning-based management model into new situations, including a case in decreasing negative bear-human interactions in which we got put in a realistic situation with a limited budget, not so extensive data; full-class presentations and reviews of the presented plans, and a time-frame of 3 years.
