The larger species are umbrella species, which can serve as a conservation
proxy for protecting other species. Despite the gain from the reestablishment of
species, from a demographic and genetic perspective, larger herbivore species
such as black and white rhinos, elephants, and buffaloes, as well as large
predators such as lions, cheetahs, and wild dogs, generally do not occur in viable
numbers on the tourism sample properties. However, if collaborative partnerships

It is all too easy to forget that many of the costs of biodiversity conservation – in
terms of the abundance of pests and predators – are borne locally. The
conclusion that biodiversity conservation pays even where the local opportunity
costs of conservation are high is encouraging. However, it also means that the
explanation for the continuing decline in dense forest cover (as a proxy for
conservation) must lie elsewhere. A second reason to welcome this study follows
from this.

news reporting originating in Tarragona, Spain, by VerticalNews journalists,
research stated, “Past temperature variations are usually inferred from proxy data
or estimated using general circulation models. Comparisons between climate
estimations derived from proxy records and from model simulations help to better
understand mechanisms driving climate variations, and also offer the possibility
to identify deficiencies in both approaches.” The news reporters obtained a quote

The rest of this chapter provides a brief synopsis of the importance of different
modified forest systems for biodiversity conservation (see also Koh and Gardner,
2009). Although many factors contribute to the value of differently managed forest
systems for biodiversity conservation, it is often helpful to have in mind a gradient
of structural complexity as a crude proxy of conservation value that moves from
intact native forest, through selectively logged forest, secondary forests,
agroforestry ...

Charcoal was used as a proxy for humanrelated forest disturbance from burning,
and inorganic geochemical concentrations were used to measure dust input into
the basin as a proxy for changes in rainfall. Synchronous changes in these
proxies were compared over time to determine the relative impact of humans and
climate change on Congo Basin forests in the past. The key findings from these
studies indicate that both rainfall and temperature were variable in the Congo
Basin ...

The vehicle population and time factors, when combined with the conservation
proxy index just described, give rise to five separate measures of conservation
potential, each one bounded by the 10-25% fuel efficiency improvement zone.
The first measure expresses the potential relative to the total population of
vehicles active in CY 1985. A second measures the potential corresponding to
savings accumulated by the total population in use from 1980-85. A third
measure states the ...
