Abstract

There has been much recent interest in the development of systematic reserve selection

This paper makes a contribution to this line of research by presenting two different optimization

budgets, the first minimizes expected species losses over all possible site loss

following the worst-case loss of a restricted subset of nonreserve sites. By incorporating the

allow a conservation planner to take a less defensive and more strategic view of reserve

high-risk sites. We compare both of these methods to a more standard approach,

of threat faced by different sites and species. Results on a realistic dataset show that significant

modeling frameworks.
