Conserving mobile species

Interested in migratory species and conservation?  Check out our paper just released in Frontiers in Ecology and Environment.

Migratory species move around the landscape, and to conserve them properly we need to coordinate conservation actions across all parts of their seasonal range. In our paper we talk about just what it is that makes conserving mobile species (such as migrants and nomads) such a complex problem. We describe some conservation tools that incorporate the unique needs of mobile species and what we can do when we have very little information.
