RECOMMENDATIONS AND ACTIONS

Consistent with the Major Findings, the Panel has formulated eight Recommendations to guide management responses. These Recommendations are divided among three themes: Address local factors that can reduce OAH exposure; Enhance the ability of biota to cope with OAH stress; and, Expand and integrate knowledge about OAH. For each Recommendation, the Panel provides specific Actions that can be implemented immediately and largely accomplished within a one-year timespan. The Panel’s Recommendations and Actions highlight avenues where new science can quickly catalyze management options for addressing OAH.
