Designing Compact and Contiguous Reserve Networks with a Hybrid Heuristic Algorithm
Motivated by the ongoing reserve efforts in the large and diverse Klamath-Siskiyou region of southwestern Oregon and northwestern California, common heuristic search techniques are implemented and results compared on various simulated test problems. From these findings a new heuristic is developed that reduces solution time and increases solution quality. When applied to the Klamath-Siskiyou region, results are promising. FOR. SCI. 48(1):59–68.
