Scientists Call for Accelerated Conservation

New England forests are at a turning point. For the first time in 200 years, forest cover - which peaked at 80 percent of the landscape in 2000 - has begun to decline in every New England state. If sprawl and development continue at current rates, 63 percent of the landscape may be developed by 2030, jeopardizing the natural infrastructure that supports public water supplies, outdoor tourism and recreation, the local wood economy, wildlife habitat and regional resilience to climate change. In response to this challenge, 20 scholars, including the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute's research landscape ecologist, Jonathan Thompson, have published a forest conservation vision called Wildlands and Woodlands: A Vision for the New England Landscape, which examines these trends and promotes strategies for permanently retaining 70 percent of New England in forest over the next 50 years. The science behind the vision comes from decades of research supported primarily by the National Science Foundation and its Long-Term Ecological Research Program.

The vision would triple the amount of conserved land in New England. Sixty-three percent of the landscape would be "Woodlands," forests conserved by willing landowners and sustainably managed for multiple uses, from recreation to urban tree cover to wood products. Seven percent of the landscape would be "Wildland" reserves, areas selected by local communities to eventually become old-growth forests, which today only make up 0.2 percent of the region's forests. The vision also notes the economic and ecological benefits of retaining the farms that today cover 7 percent of the landscape. Achieving all of these goals would still leave room for up to a doubling of well-planned development in the future.

A New England landscape that remains four-fifths covered in forest will require a doubling in current rates of land conservation - no small task given that the majority of forests in New England are privately owned. The report includes a suite of collaborative, voluntary approaches to conservation across private, public and non-profit sectors. It also recommends that state and federal agencies expand funding opportunities and tax incentives for forest conservation.

David Foster, lead author of the Wildlands and Woodlands report and director of Harvard Forest, sums up the vision's goal: "By employing the phenomenal capacity for conservation that lies in the countless individuals, private organizations, and public agencies in New England, we can protect the natural infrastructure that supports all life while creating a prosperous future for our region and its residents." The report is available for download on the project website:

Job Opportunities

IAP Worldwide Services - under contract with the U.S. Geological Survey, Patuxent Wildlife Research Center - is seeking a full-time waterbird biologist to assist on two projects: (1) effects of shoreline change on waterbird species in the Chesapeake Bay, and (2) using satellite telemetry to study the potential for wild birds to transmit H5N1 avian influenza in Asia. Other duties will include coordinating on-going research projects, writing reports, data entry, updating animal care and use permits, communicating with project cooperators, and performing other tasks as directed by supervisor. Incumbent will work at the USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center (Beltsville, Maryland) through a contract position with IAP Worldwide Services. The current IAP contract ends January 31, 2011, however, funding is in place to continue the position through fall 2014; therefore highly motivated applicants are sought who are interested in continuing the position, dependent upon review of performance. Position will remain open until filled. Target start date is mid-June. Apply at (ID 10341BR).
