Sites: An Analytical Toolbox for Ecoregional Conservation Planning
Entry ID: UCSB_SITES
Abstract: The Analytical Toolbox for Ecoregional Conservation Planning (SITES) is a
customized ArcView project that facilitates designing and analyzing alternative
portfolios. The software in Sites 1.0 to select regionally representative
systems of nature reserves for the conservation of biodiversity is called the
Site Selection Module (SSM). It is a streamlined derivative of SPEXAN 3.0
(Spatially ... Explicit Annealing) that was developed by Ian Ball and Hugh
Possingham. SPEXAN was originally developed as a stand-alone program with no
GIS interface for displaying portfolios and ancillary spatial data. The model
was applied in two TNC ecoregions--the Idaho Batholith and the Northern Sierra
Nevada. This web site contains the Sites 1.0 software, example data sets, and
a slide show demonstrating the modeling process.
