Purpose: This project will map BVI’s terrestrial ecosystems to inform gaps present within the proposed protected area network and inform the creation of a draft management plan for forests, based upon the IUCN ecosystem based approach. This will lead to the identification of new areas for inclusion in the BVI Protected Areas System Plan and provide baseline data that will inform the creation of a dynamic decision support tool for conservation management. The ex-situ conservation role of the JR O’Neal Botanic Gardens (JRONBG) will be strengthened as more threatened native species from forest ecosystems are incorporated into the Collections.
