Vital Signs:

Some Preliminary Trends

John Gross

I&M Program

Ft Collins, CO


Roadmap l.jpg
Roadmap …

  • Request and responses

  • Results and general observations

  • Conclusions


Goals l.jpg
Goals

  • Identify commonalities among networks

  • Avoid duplication

  • Allocate resources effectively, and

  • Provide feedback to networks


The request l.jpg
The request

Send a draft list of vital signs … The plan is to use the items to tabulate how many networks have identified certain indicators or issues as a high priority, so that we can identify and discuss opportunities for further collaboration and coordination…


The responses l.jpg
The responses …

  • High level of creativity in approach and philosophy

  • Most > 1 list; some many pages

    • By network or by individual park unit

  • Stressors, attributes, indicators, measurements

  • High variation in detail

    • water quality vs dissolved oxygen

    • birds vs spotted owl

    • some phrased as questions


Approach l.jpg
Approach

  • Examine lists

  • SGSAT approach to identify categories

  • Assign vital signs to categories

    • Select priority vital signs

    • Category headings

  • Note issues


Categories l.jpg
Categories

  • Landscape / Humans

  • Abiotic

  • Biotic – terrestrial

  • Biotic – aquatic


Landscape humans l.jpg
Landscape / Humans

Land use (in and out of parks)

Land cover (confounded)

Visitor / backcountry use



Biotic terrestrial l.jpg
Biotic:Terrestrial


Biotic aquatic riparian wetlands l.jpg
Biotic:Aquatic / Riparian / Wetlands


Slide12 l.jpg

Future summaries

  • ecological scale

    • region, landscape, ecosystem, ….

  • broad-scale habitat

    • terrestrial, freshwater, marine, wetland, riparian

  • taxonomic group

  • indicator vs attribute

  • frequency of measurement


Slide13 l.jpg

Opportunities …

  • exotic / invasive organisms

  • land use / land cover

  • remote sensing

  • aquatic organisms – fish, invertebrates

  • water chemistry

  • air quality

  • animals – amphibians, birds, mammals

    • deer

  • T&E species (rare taxa)


Slide14 l.jpg

Conclusions…

  • significant opportunities for coordination

  • categories need to be more specific

  • common (concise) format useful

  • repeat after October
