Assessing Land Use/Cover Change

Summary

Scope and Methods This effort evaluates the effects of future land uses on vegetation and wildlife habitat and is designed to illustrate potential management actions that may minimize land-use impacts. The entire WLCI landscape will be included in a spatially-explicit simulation framework to explore future potential land-use effects and the potential influence of future climatic conditions. Future potential energy development will be simulated along with elements of climate change from climate models to determine potential types and patterns of land cover change. Scenarios of future change will be employed to determine conditions (land uses and patterns) that minimize long-term effects on vegetation conditions and wildlife resources, [...]
