Assessing Cumulative Impacts of Alternative Land Use Scenarios On Breeding Bird Habitat (in Proc. Conference Biology & Management of Species and Habitats at Risk) Dobson, Brenda
1999

Abstract: Increasing recognition of the importance of understanding, assessing, and mitigating cumulative effects has led national park managers to seek methods that can assist in land use decision-making and the environmental assessment process. The objective of this research is to develop a geographic information system (GIS)-based model to investigate the cumulative impacts of alternative land use scenarios on 2 ecological indicators. The model incorporates ecological data and habitat models for a suite of ecological indicators and human use data managed by ARC/INFO software. A grizzly bear cumulative effects model has been developed for Jasper National Park to assess the effects of human activities on grizzly bears and their habitat. This model is useful in exploring the implications of land uses at the landscape scale, but has limited ability to assess alternative development scenarios at fine scales...
