BIODIVERSITY VARIATION AND CHANGE ON A COMPLEX COASTAL PLAIN LANDSCAPE: CAUSES, CONNECTIONS, CONSEQUENCES, AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ECOSYSTEM RESTORATION AND CONSERVATION

The 10-yr Defense Coastal/Estuarine Research Program (DCERP) research and monitoring project was designed to support ecosystem-based management on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, with the overarching objective to maintain the area's natural resources. This report summarizes DCERP's terrestrial ecosystem research and monitoring efforts to provide a uniform, geographically explicit database for plant species composition and abundance that will serve as the basis for assessing regional and site-specific changes in plant communities. This report also provides natural resources managers with a focused set of species and site indicators to facilitate future monitoring to assess important changes in terrestrial ecosystem health. Monitoring of plant communities is key to understanding possible local and landscape-level changes in habitat for species, such as the federally listed red-cockaded woodpecker. https://www.serdp-estcp.org/content/download/47538/453329/file/RC-2245%20Technical%20Report%20-%20Forestry%20Management.pdf
