Identifying Adaptation Management Options for Whitebark Pine in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem

May 22, 2013


Collaborators: in the Greater Yellowstone EcosystemGreater Yellowstone Coordinating Committee (GYCC) Whitebark Pine Subcommittee (WBPSC)

Goal: Update and inform the implementation of the WBP Strategy given forecasted climate change


Current management strategies
Current management strategies in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem


Existing Prioritization in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem


Whitebark pine subcommittee questions
Whitebark Pine Subcommittee Questions in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem

  • Where should WBP treatments be placed in the landscape to be effective under a future climate?

  • At a landscape scale, how effective would the climate informed treatments be under current land allocation constraints? For example, is connectively and genetic exchange maintained under future climate and current land allocation?

  • What spatial distribution of WBP treatments is necessary to maintain functioning WBP regardless of current land allocation constraints?

  • How will the values of ecosystem services vary under various treatments and future climate scenarios?



At a landscape scale, how effective would the climate informed treatments be under current land allocation constraints?


Methods
Methods informed treatments be under current land allocation constraints?

  • At a landscape scale, how effective would the climate informed treatments be under current land allocation constraints?

  • What spatial distribution of WBP treatments is necessary to maintain functioning WBP regardless of current land allocation constraints?


Evaluation of management scenarios
Evaluation of Management Scenarios informed treatments be under current land allocation constraints?

For each climate/management scenario:

Quantification of WBP distribution

Quantification of connectivity/fragmentation of distribution

Quantification of cost

Quantification of benefit (using market and non-market valuation techniques)


Recommendations
Recommendations informed treatments be under current land allocation constraints?

  • Are there “no regrets” actions robust under each climate scenario?

  • Are specific policy changes recommended given analysis?

    OR

  • Are uncertainties too large to make concrete recommendations? If so…..

  • Scenario planning workshop
