Short Biography

Chip Euliss obtained his Bachelor's degree in Biology and Chemistry from Appalachian State University in 1973.  After serving a short stint with the U.S. Army (Army Medical Research and Development Command) at the Presidio in San Francisco, Chip returned to school and completed M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Wildlife Science at Humboldt State University and Oregon State University, respectively.  Chip began his career with the Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center at the California Field Station in Dixon, California in 1986.  In 1990, Chip transferred to the main laboratory in Jamestown, North Dakota to continue his life-long passion to study wetlands.  In 2010, Chip was elected Fellow by the Society of Wetland Scientists and in May 2012, he received the Meritorious Service Award for exceptional contributions that have resulted in an increased knowledge of the multiple services provided by the Nation’s wetland ecosystems and Interior’s ability to effectively manage these ecosystems for the overall benefit of society.  Chip has published over 100 papers and reports, including 2 manuscripts that were recently recognized as being among the top 30 papers in the last 3 decades to advance wetland science and influence the direction of future work (http://www.springer.com/life+sciences/ecology/journal/13157?detailsPage=press).

Integrated Landscape Modeling:  Conservation at a Crossroads

 

Chip Euliss – Relative to the older and more traditional sciences like chemistry and physics, conservation science is a relatively new field that grew out of the conservation movement of the 20th Century.  The initial focus was on big game but it quickly spread to other wildlife species; the great accomplishments of the conservation movement provides a great example of how science can inform decisions to make delivery of a specific ecosystem service, wildlife in this case, sustainable.  However, since the conservation movement began, there are fewer people living in rural areas than the past and the proportion of the American public that interacts with the natural world on a daily basis has declined.  Consequently, our traditional conservation ethic, especially for fish and wildlife services, has eroded; people simply do not have the day-to-day contact with the natural world they did just a few decades ago.  However, humans who have moved to large population centers for better paying jobs have been showing an increased interest in nontraditional natural resource products or ecosystem services (e.g., carbon storage, flood water retention).  However, until recently, there has been little work by the conservation community that ties the role of conservation lands to the delivery of the nontraditional services valued by society. To address this need, my research has taken a systems perspective where the goal is to understand and communicate how land-use change affects the performance and sustainability of ecosystems to inform decisions affecting ecosystem sustainability and services they provide to society.
