Vital Signs:

Some Preliminary Trends

John Gross

I&M Program

Ft Collins, CO

roadmap
Roadmap …
  • Request and responses
  • Results and general observations
  • Conclusions
goals
Goals
  • Identify commonalities among networks
  • Avoid duplication
  • Allocate resources effectively, and
  • Provide feedback to networks
the request
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
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
Approach
  • Examine lists
  • SGSAT approach to identify categories
  • Assign vital signs to categories
    • Select priority vital signs
    • Category headings
  • Note issues
categories
Categories
  • Landscape / Humans
  • Abiotic
  • Biotic – terrestrial
  • Biotic – aquatic
landscape humans
Landscape / Humans

Land use (in and out of parks)

Land cover (confounded)

Visitor / backcountry use

Future summaries

  • ecological scale
    • region, landscape, ecosystem, ….
  • broad-scale habitat
    • terrestrial, freshwater, marine, wetland, riparian
  • taxonomic group
  • indicator vs attribute
  • frequency of measurement
slide13

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

Conclusions…

  • significant opportunities for coordination
  • categories need to be more specific
  • common (concise) format useful
  • repeat after October
