Goals

  • Expand understanding of wetland and waterbird ecology in the boreal forest.
  • Map 520,243,000 ha of landcover in Alaska within the next 20 years.

Assumptions

  • Digital remote-sensed data, combined with GIS analyses, will allow land managers to make reasonable land use decisions.
  • Knowledge gained in northern boreal habitats will aid in our understanding of disturbed systems in the southern (Canadian) boreal habitats.

Strategies

  • Expand partnership efforts with major agencies, Native Alaskans, and resource-minded industry.
  • Identify major wetland complexes important to waterbirds.
  • Coordinate with DUC to develop digital landcover mapping of key wetland complexes.
  • Develop GIS analyses of waterbird distribution and landcover relationships.
  • Conduct basic ecological investigations to improve understanding of waterfowl use in boreal habitats of Alaska.
