LCCs will enable resource management agencies and organizations to collaborate in an integrated fashion within and across landscapes. LCCs will provide scientific and technical support to inform landscape-scale conservation using adaptive management principles. LCCs will engage in biological planning, conservation design, inventory and monitoring program design, and other types of conservation-based scientific research, planning and coordination. LCCs will play an important role in helping partners establish common goals and priorities, so they can be more efficient and effective in targeting the right science in the right places.
