Combining models and data to set guidelines for butterfly conservation Crone, Elizabeth


Conservation managers often need to set general guidelines for habitat management and species recovery. Typical metrics for planning include knowing the minimum area needed to support a population and the rate at which a population will expand through heterogeneous landscapes. I will show examples of how we have combined IDE models with demography and movement data to estimate these metrics for butterfly populations of conservation concern. I will discuss some implications of these case studies for conservation, and also their implications for making theoretical models more relevant to conservation planning.
