Stishov M., 2012
The proposed methodology is aimed at the evaluation of conservation effectiveness of protected areas (PAs), their individual conservation
functions, and entire regional PA systems, including planned ones, with the purpose of identifying the need, opportunities, and priority
areas for the optimization of PAs, their regional systems, and management approaches. Conservation effectiveness is viewed as the degree to what a PA of a regional PA system is successful in fulfilling its conservation objectives arising from its natural peculiarities. Conservation effectiveness depends not only on the management of individual PAs and their systems, but on all other circumstances affecting PAs – their layout, geographic location, surroundings etc.
Li Zhenxin, Fridolin Zimmermann,2010 Develop a landscape conservation plan for tigers in the Changbaishan mountain landscape
involving key stakeholders by:
• Defining potential tiger habitat as tiger conservation priority areas for short-term, mediumterm,
and long-term effective protection and management to recover tigers;
• Identifying ecological corridors between large patches of potential tiger habitat
• Identifying critical priority areas for immediate actions to address the main threats as the
bases for tiger recovery in Changbaishan landscape;
• Providing basic recommendations to guide development of a full tiger conservation strategy
and action plan.
