Conservation Planning and Design, Vulnerability Assessment

A recent (2008-2012) outbreak of Geometrid moths has decimated subsistence berry harvest in South Central Alaska. This project developed a risk model to predict where subsistence berry plants will be most resistant to Geometrid attack. The model was used to identify areas where berry improvement silvicultural treatments are most likely to be successful.
