Abruzzi Table 1: Planning Tools Index

Columns to the right indicate key characteristics of each tool. Colored boxes indicate that the tool is suitable for that situation/planning step, while those left white indicate the tool is not ideal. Wave the cursor over column and row headers for brief descriptions of each. Click on the green column headers to sort the table according to specific characteristics. Click on each tool name to access further details and examples of application. Open the Species Conservation Planning Cycle for more details about the Planning Process Steps.
