Abstract

In a collaborative project with Northern Arizona University and more than 35 resource managers in Arizona and Nevada, we completed a survey of monitoring and management activities that are ongoing in these states for conserving populations of rare plants. We sent questionnaires consisting of 16 questions to as many resource managers as possible in these states and had follow-up conversations with several managers willing to share their perspective on ongoing conservation actions. The findings may be interesting for managers to see what issues and management strategies other managers in the same or different regions are grappling with. Results will be published as a chapter in a book titled “Advances in Environmental Research” slated for printing in the fourth quarter of 2010. We thank Lake Mead National Recreation Area for partial support of the project and the many resource managers who provided their valuable help with this synthesis.
