Abstract/Contents:"Golf courses impact the environment. Determining whether those impacts are positive, negative, or neutral begins with an integrated research and monitoring program both on and off the course. The golf industry has an impressive history of measuring environmental impacts within the fairway's boundries, but less attention has been directed to influences to out-of-play areas and "downstream" sites and the flora and fauna of these areas. The USGA's Wildlife Links program was established in part to address this specific need. Projects funded through Wildlife Links focus on the impact of golf course operations on wildlife both on- and off-site. Although our knowledge of these influences is still preliminary, linking traditional turfgrass research with wildlife oriented programs could greatly accelerate our understanding of these issues. In this presentation I will propose issues of mutual interest that could form an agenda for research for both turfgrass and wildlife. Expanding the research horizon from turfgrass to wildlife can help minimize potential negative impacts of course operations on wildlife and maximize opportunities for golf courses to contribute in a meaningful way to natural resource conservation."
