Migratory Fish Connectivity This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the waterscapes “habitat aggregate”, which is intended to capture connections across all aquatic ecosystems. It is an index capturing how far upstream different migratory fish species have been observed. Reason for Selection Aquatic connectivity, which benefits diadromous fish, is considered a high priority for the integrity of aquatic ecosystems. Input Data -- Southeast Aquatic Connectivity Assessment Project (SEACAP) Mapping Steps 1) We used HUC 12 watershed boundary dataset polygons to dissect the polygons representing functional catchments. We did this by using the intersect function in ArcGIS. This sliced up the functional...

Resilient Biodiversity Hotspots This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the landscapes “habitat aggregate”, which is intended to capture connections across all terrestrial ecosystems. It is an index of mostly natural, high-diversity areas potentially resilient to climate change. Reason for Selection Resilience scores quantify a combination of landscape diversity and local connectedness, stratified by geophysical setting and ecoregion. These measures represent the the diversity of microclimates available to species based on their topography, wetland density, and elevation range, as well as the connectivity of natural cover. This builds on research from Anderson and Ferree (2010), who showed geophysical...

Freshwater Marsh Extent This layer is an older version of one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the tidal and nontidal freshwater marsh ecosystem. It captures the overall acres of freshwater marsh in the South Atlantic geography. This indicator was updated in Blueprint 2.2 to use an improved resampling method and reflect changes in how extent indicators and ecosystem maps are envisioned. Reason for Selection Overall acreage provides an indicator of whether tidal freshwater marsh being inundated by sea level rise is being replaced or restored somewhere else. It is also well monitored and resonates with a diversity of audiences. Input Data, Mapping Steps, and Known Issues -- This indicator was created as...
thumbnail
Unaltered Beach This layer is an outdated version of one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the beach and dune ecosystem. It is an index of altered beaches capturing impacts from hardened structures like jetties, groins, and infrastructure. This indicator was updated in Blueprint 2.2 to incorporate more recent data from the Coastal Barrier Resources System, which is used to set the boundaries of undeveloped beaches. The updated indicator was also extended to new areas of the beach and dune ecosystem map. Reason for Selection Altered beaches (including human developments along shorelines, jetties, groins, seawalls, revetments, and other structures) provide a measure of overall habitat alteration. Human infrastructure...

Beach Birds This layer is an older version of one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the beach and dune ecosystem. It is an index capturing observed abundance of four shorebird species. This indicator was updated in Blueprint 2.1 to rescale it from 0-100 for consistency with other continuous indicators. Reason for Selection This index represents a variety of ecosystem features and the species selected are already being monitored for the entire region by state and Federal agencies. Input Data Wilson's Plover and American Oystercatcher Betsy Von Holle (University of Central Florida) led a project that included state waterbird biologists in the South Atlantic: Tim Keyes, Felicia Sanders, Sara Schweitzer, and...

Forested Wetland Amphibians This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the forested wetland ecosystem. It captures Priority Reptile and Amphibian Conservation Areas within forested wetlands. Reason for Selection Amphibians provide an indicator of the condition and arrangement of embedded isolated wetlands. Input Data South Atlantic LCC Priority Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Areas (PARCAs) served as input data for this indicator. PARCAs are a nonregulatory designation established to raise public awareness and spark voluntary action by landowners and conservation partners to benefit amphibians and/or reptiles. Areas are nominated using scientific criteria and expert review, drawing on the concepts...

Coastal Condition This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the estuarine ecosystem. It is an index of coastal condition capturing water quality, sediment quality, and benthic community condition. Reason for Selection This index measures the overall abiotic condition of the system, is well monitored, and is synthesized by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) every five years. It integrates measures of water quality, sediment quality, and benthic habitat quality. Input Data -- The EPA Coastal Condition Index (CCI) is a ranking derived from a water quality index, sediment quality index, benthic index, coastal habitat index, and fish tissue contaminants index (US EPA 2012). The coastal habitat...

Freshwater Marsh Extent This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the tidal and nontidal freshwater marsh ecosystem. It captures the overall acres of freshwater marsh in the South Atlantic geography. Reason for Selection Overall acreage of existing freshwater marsh provides an indicator of whether tidal freshwater marsh being inundated by sea level rise is being replaced or restored somewhere else. It is also well monitored and resonates with a diversity of audiences. Since the area occupied by freshwater marsh shifts over time due to land use change, this extent indicator complements the freshwater marsh ecosystem map. The ecosystem map attempts to include other potential sites for freshwater...

The marine depth zones were created as a part of The Nature Conservancy's South Atlantic Bight Marine Assessment (SABMA) project to characterize the unique fish and invertebrate communities and dominant ecological processes that typically occur within a particular bathymetry range. The South Atlantic LCC used these data to help stratify the results of the marine prioritization in Blueprint 2.0 and 2.1. Blueprint 2.2 no longer needed to use this layer due to improved indicators for marine mammals and marine birds. For more details on the seafloor habitats analysis, please refer to this pdf in the "bathymetry zones" section. SABMA identified six biologically relevant depth zones: ‚Äč Bathybenthic/abyssal (-1,000 m...
