Amanda Cravens and Robin O’Malley Co-Authors on Recent NPS Report
A new report titled Resist-Accept-Direct (RAD)—A Framework for the 21st-century Natural Resource Manager was recently published in the National Park Service Natural Resource Report series. The report introduces a decision framework that provides a simple tool that encompasses the entire decision space for managing ecosystems facing the potential for rapid, irreversible ecological change. It assists managers in making informed, purposeful choices about how to respond to the trajectory of change, and moreover, provides a straightforward approach to support resource managers in collaborating at larger scales across jurisdictions.
Amanda Cravens, an NC CASC and USGS affiliate, and Robin O’Malley, the former USGS Director for the NC CASC were listed as co-authors on the report.
