Summary

This project updated the Northeast Terrestrial Habitat Map by remapping the Virginia coastal plain and piedmont (the previous version adopted the Southeast GAP map for these regions). This resulted in a map that is fully consistent across the 13 state Northeast region (Maine to Virginia and West Virginia).

Purpose

The Northeast Terrestrial Habitat Mapping Project was undertaken in 2008 with the support of the Northeast Association of Fish Wildlife Agencies (NEAFWA) as part of its Regional Conservation Needs assessment. Development of a consistent habitat classification framework and map was seen by many Northeastern biologists and managers as the most critical initiative for habitat-based conservation efforts. The purpose of this mapping effort is to provide a common framework and language for conservation planning and wildlife management across jurisdictional borders. Specifically, the Northeast Terrestrial Habitat Classification System (NETHCS) and this map aim to: provide a standardized and consistent habitat and ecosystem classification at multiple scales across states; facilitate interstate communication about habitats; offer managers a tool for understanding regional biodiversity patterns; allow for more effective and efficient habitat conservation across the region, including the prioritization of habitat conservation activities. The project was supported by State Wildlife Grant funding awarded through the Northeast Regional Conservation Needs (RCN) Program. The RCN Program joins thirteen northeast states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in a partnership to address landscape-scale, regional wildlife conservation issues. Progress on these regional issues is achieved through combining resources, leveraging funds, and prioritizing conservation actions identified in the State Wildlife Action Plans. See rcngrants.org for more information.
