special issue focuses on the Central Valley Joint Venture.
Despite massive losses of habitat, the Central Valley’s wetlands, riparian forests, and grassland–oak savannah woodlands still provide some of the most important bird habitat in North America.
Nearly three million ducks, two million geese, and 350,000 shorebirds continue to overwinter in this region (Shuford et al. 1998; Olson 2014), making the Central Valley an internationally important area for migratory waterbirds in the Pacific Flyway.
Prioritization of conservation actions in the Central Valley for these waterbirds and landbirds is a critical step toward increasing their populations.
Papers in this special issue address the challenges of setting conservation objectives for birds in California’s Central Valley.
These papers use the best available science and local data to set objectives in a manner that is transparent, well-documented, and repeatable.
