1. Topic: Concepts and theory of spatial conservation planning

Researchers: Jussi Laitila, Atte Moilanen and Federico Montesino Pouzols
Collaborator: Professor Otso Ovaskainen

As a part of GEDA, we aim at solidifying theory of spatial conservation planning, to facilitate conceptually, mathematically, statistically and methodologically well justified application of decision analysis to ecologically based decision making.

Most important new methods will also be implemented as software.
