Abstract: 

The purpose of this Sonoma County biodiversity vital signs project is to develop a monitoring framework capable of both enhancing our scientific understanding of relationships between biodiversity, habitat, and management and to support and evaluate the implementation of active conservation programs. This project supports the Sonoma County Biodiversity Action Plan (2010) which defines overall conservation objectives for the County and the current state of our knowledge about general relationships between natural system drivers, human threats, ecological stressors, and benefits of conservation programs both proposed and underway. The Biodiversity Action Plan vision statement summarizes our targeted long-term outcome: A Sonoma County with resilient, biologically diverse natural systems that provide lasting ecosystem functions and services into the future.
