Summary

Potentially suitable habitat for the American burying beetle (Nicrophorus americanus) was identified within the Southern Plains. The American burying beetle (ABB) is listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act, but in 2019 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposed to reclassify this species as threatened. We applied a deductive model for the ABB that identified potentially suitable habitat using LANDFIRE Existing Vegetation Types (EVT). The habitat model ranked each EVT using one of four categories: (1) favorable; suitable vegetation to support all or critical portions of the ABB life cycle, (2) conditional; favorable only under certain conditions including seasonality of flooding and land management practices, (3) marginal; [...]

Purpose

To prepare a Biological Assessment for a proposed vegetation management program by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), we mapped the spatial distribution of potential American burying beetle habitat within the Southern Plains. This dataset represents the location of potentially suitable habitat based on a deductive model using land cover and development but does not represent the likelihood of occurrence of American burying beetles.

Provenance

Version 1.1 corrects a previously undetected processing error, affecting 0.88 percent of the Southern Plains analysis area. The error occurred while clipping source data, resulting in misclassification of habitat suitability ranks in version 1.0 of the data release.
