SITE ACCESSIBILITY AND PRIORITIZATION OF NATURE RESERVES

This paper presents an integer programming approach to determine a reserve network with maximum accessibility while providing full protection to targeted species. We present an empirical application to endangered/threatened birds in Illinois.
