Title:Canaries in the catbird seat : the past, present, and future of biological resources in a changing environment
Author(s):Taylor, Christopher A.; Taft, John B.; Warwick, Charles.
Subject(s):Biodiversity conservation
Ecosystem management
Environmental monitoring
Natural resources
Abstract:With the exception of Chapter 2, which provides a vivid overview of the Illinois landscape, the remaining chapters are organized under two general themes. The first theme centers on change that has occurred since INHS’ founding. Types of change include those to habitats, flora or fauna, or even management practices. The second theme is one of putting science to work. Chapters in this section demonstrate how much of the data discussed and compiled in the proceeding section can be used for such things as predicting future trends or improving habitat for declining plants and animals. Finally, a concluding chapter looks to what the future holds for natural resources in Illinois and beyond.
