Dating back to 2013, the Great Basin LCC has supported 41 conservation research projects with its Science and Traditional Ecological Knowledge (S-TEK) Strategic Plan. Drawing on our Steering Committee's regional expertise, GBLCC supports conservation research to address pressing conservation issues facing the Great Basin, which has included sagebrush modelling based on various emissions scenarios, tribal adaptations to climate change, mapping of wetlands across the region, and many more projects.

Conservation Science in the Great Basin provides users with an opportunity to learn about and interact with GBLCC's unique partner-driven research approach, and to understand how each of those projects fits into the broader vision for regional environmental and cultural conservation that GBLCC exists to support.

Displaying maps, video, photos, and infographics Conservation Science in the Great Basin engages users through a variety of media.

Look for geospatial layers, reports, academic papers and more products resulting from S-TEK projects on the Conservation Planning Atlas in the coming weeks in our Conservation Research Supported by the Great Basin LCC Guide and Case Study.
