The projectís broad goal is to provide generalized analytic and decision-making models to assess spatial-temporal habitat supply and mortality risk to grizzly bears from scenarios involving forest management plans. These tools will aid planners and managers that need to assess tradeoffs between objectives for grizzly bear management and with those of timber production at tactical and operational scales. They will also be of interest to local and international organizations concerned with grizzly bear conservation. Because land-use planning is inherently a multi-scale, spatial-temporal process our aim is to also create robust models that will provide insights at strategic scales of planning, and over long time periods.
