Summary

This project is intended to address a high priority science need for the North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC): the need to enhance the capacity of partners to assess and design sustainable landscape conservation for wildlife across the eastern United States. Specifically, this project is intended to address elements 1b) of a broader Designing Sustainable Landscapes project: 1. Assess the current capability of habitats in the North Atlantic LCC to support sustainable wildlife populations a. Select representative terrestrial wildlife species b. Develop habitat relationship models for representative species c. Predict capability of current landscape to support populations of representative species 2. Predict the impacts [...]

Purpose

The project developed habitat capability models for representative wildlife species. It was part of a project led by the University of Massachusetts Amherst to enhance the capacity of partners to assess and design sustainable landscape conservation in the Northeast.

typeSummary of Results
valueThe University of Vermont collaborated with UMass Amherst to develop and document habitat capability models for four representative species: Blackpoll Warbler, Louisiana Waterthrush, Wood Thrush, and Wood Turtle. The models are being used in the NALCC-sponsored Designing Sustainable Landscapes project. In 2014, spatial datasets depicting landscape capability for Blackpoll Warbler, Louisiana Waterthrush, and Wood Thrush were made available on the North Atlantic LCC's Conservation Planning Atlas on DataBasin. The Wood Turtle model has also been completed; contact the North Atlantic LCC for information on access to this dataset.
