Decisions Informed by the USGS Changing Arctic Ecosystems Initiative
Through the Changing Arctic Ecosystems (CAE) Initiative, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is informing key resource management decisions by better understanding how wildlife populations of special interest to the Department of the Interior (DOI) are responding to rapid physical changes in the Arctic. Below are some examples of how CAE research is informing decision-making.
Science for Oil and Gas Leasing-related Decisions
Science Informing Endangered Species Act Decisions and Recovery Planning
Science Informing the Status and Trends of Migratory Birds
