Notice: this Working Group is currently inactive.
An important goal of this group is to better link the land use planning and the herpetology communities by providing useful information for both. Our initial projects included generating a list of biodiversity conservation and planning literature.
We are currently finishing up a document (Nine Rules for Biodiversity-Friendly Residential Development) for municipalities and planners, especially those interested in LEED development.
