Abstract

While decision tools and processes, such as structured decision-making and adaptive management, are gaining widespread acceptance in the conservation literature, implementation on the ground is less common. This chapter describes how specific decision tools were developed and implemented over a seven- year period to assist national park managers in Victoria, Australia, to manage an invasive willow species (Salix cinerea), which threatens endangered alpine bog communities. Despite enthusiasm and commitment from all partners, implementation created a range of challenges for scientists and managers, including the need to clearly understand management objectives, effectively communicate research results and develop efficient data collection and transfer processes. Using the willow example as a case study, this chapter describes and reflects on these challenges and how they were overcome to help managers maximise the impact of their efforts.
