Getting the biggest bang for our conservation buck
Most conservation programs operate with limited resources and budgets. Optimal decision-making tools can be used to indicate the best allocation of such resources to achieve conservation goals. Recently, Chades et al. suggested an approach for doing so, with one of the management decisions being to halt conservation efforts. Here I discuss the results of Chades et al. and suggest formal adaptive resource management as an alternative tool when there is uncertainty in how populations respond to management actions.
