Data-based exploration of management options


This WP aims to explore early-warning indicators and management options in the face of looming DTPs based on qualitative and quantitative results of retrospective, comparative and prospective studies (work packages E1-3 & S1-3). Early-warning indicators of system shifts can offer critical lead-time for rangeland managers to make preventative adjustments; they are thus the basis for a proactive management. Correspondingly, adequate management strategies are essential to avoid DTPs, yet these need to be realistic and match local conditions and capabilities. To this end, work package 4 will perform an interdisciplinary synthesis of local ecological knowledge and scientific ecological knowledge. We expect that each ecosystem component will require a unique indicator (or indicator set), best suited to the dynamics of the component.
