Summary

The Bird Conservancy of the Rockies will use, combine and optimize an array of remote sensing techniques to identify the most efficient process that characterizes grasslands and level of shrub component in those grasslands. The project will classify a pilot area, the Janos Grassland Priority Conservation Area, which contains the majority of the Janos Biosphere Reserve, using a variety of remote sensing approaches. In the process they will identify the best techniques for decomposing grass-shrub intermix at low densities and identify the best approaches for large scale application of remote sensing to classify the desert grasslands and shrublands.

Purpose

The need for a consistent and detailed land cover classification has been highlighted by several teams within the Desert LCC (for use in habitat inventory, fire-fuel modeling, landscape change and risk assessments. The team leading CMQ 3 specifically identified the need to better segregate the grass and shrub composition that make up much of the desert habitats. We will identify a grassland remote sensing methodology that can be applied consistently throughout the desert grasslands any time an organization with the desire, means and capacity wishes to extend its geographic land cover inventory. The goals/objectives of this proposal are to identify which approach or combination of remote sensing approaches results in the best delineation between levels of shrub encroached grasslands, assess whether any combination of these approaches can be used at an implementation scale to delineate grass-shrub at threshold levels with biological meaning for species with available information (i.e. birds, antelope, herptiles or other grassland endemic species), classify the grasslands and shrublands of the Janos Grassland Priority Conservation Area, evaluate the compatibility for cross-walks of the classification outputs with existing classification products (LandFire, GAP, ReGAP).
