Annual raster-based maps of LULC conditions for the years 1938 to1992 were created based on information on historical patterns and prescriptions of LULC change. The intent of these historical LULC projections was not to recreate exact past LULC conditions, but to provide useful maps of simulated historical land-cover for use in secondary analysis. The baseline LULC condition was derived from a modified version of the 1992 National Land Cover Dataset (http://www.epa.gov/mrlc/nlcd.html). Historic data and others were used to guide a spatially explicit (FOREcasting SCEnarios of land-cover change) land-cover forecasting model in allocating LULC change distributions on the landscape, based on logistic regression analysis...

Mississippi River Basin Gridded SSURGO mapunits with at least 5% organic matter (generalized calculation using soil organic carbon values in the 0-20 cm horizon; assuming that bulk density is 1.4 g/cubic meter and that organic matter is 58% carbon).

Landfire v.1.2.0 Biophysical Setting within the Mississippi River Basin. The Biophysical Settings (BpS) layer represents the vegetation that may have been dominant on the landscape prior to Euro-American settlement and is based on both the current biophysical environment and an approximation of the historical disturbance regime.

Designated Topeka Shiner Critical Habitat - Iowa Wildlife Action Plan (2007). This habitat is essential for the conservation of the Topeka Shiner and may require special management and protection. All indicated areas designated as critical habitat are occupied by the species or are short segments that provide critical links between habitats.

Estimated number of breeding pairs of Bobolink based on the amount of grass, trees, and/or hay in the landscape. Landscape scale varied from 1/4- to 2-mile radius depending on the species. Pair estimates were calculated for grass patches >=1 ha, extrapolated to 40-ac cells, then smoothed by averaging over a 1-mile radius. Models were based on point count surveys conducted in 2003-2005 throughout the Tallgrass Prairie Pothole Region. Point count locations were stratified by cover type, the amount of grass in the landscape, and USFWS Wetland Management District boundaries. Landcover data were derived from 2000 Thematic Mapper imagery. Grid values = number of breeding pairs per 30-m pixel.

This data layer depicts North Dakota Game and Fish Department Wildlife Action Plan focus areas. Focus Areas typically exhibit unique or easily identifiable differences in vegetation, soils, topography, hydrology or land use. Focus Areas are highly variable in size and often represent an area of native vegetation or a natural community type rare to North Dakota. Most of the 100 Species of Conservation Priority can be linked to Focus Areas. The purpose of the data is to provide a comprehensive list and spatial location of North Dakota wildlife action plan focus areas. This dataset is primarily used as a framework data layer for use in GIS and other mapping applications and does not represent a land survey of the focus...

The Southwestern Willow Flycatcher Focal Area represents an area of interest pertaining to the southwestern willow flycatcher under the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW) Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP).Working Lands for Wildlife is a partnership between NRCS and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to use agency technical expertise and financial assistance from the Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program to combat the decline of seven specific wildlife species whose decline can be reversed and will benefit other species with similar habitat needs. The WLFW project will target species whose decline can be reversed and will...

This shapefile was created by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry. It identifies priority forest landscapes for Ohio's 2010 Statewide Forest Resource Assessment and Strategy (FRAS 2010). Priority forest landscapes are large forest blocks that have a high concentration of priority forest areas as identified in FRAS 2010. The priority forest landscapes may be used for strategic planning, competitive grants, stakeholder collaboration, and conservation marketing.This shapefile identifies priority forest landscapes developed for Ohio's 2010 Statewide Forest Resource Assessment and Strategy. The priority forest landscapes represent areas with high concentrations of priority forest areas that...

Priority Areas for conservation of terrestrial Greatest Conservation Need species in Alabama, 2008. These areas are the coarse representation of areas important to preserve viable populations of the elements of biological diversity important to the ecoregion. These areas were identified through the ecoregional Planning process with teams of experts by ecoregion. (http://www.wildlifeactionplans.org/alabama.html) or (http://www.wildlifeactionplans.org/pdfs/action_plans/al_action_plan.pdf).

Pilot Basins are HU-4 basins where there is an alignment of ecological and production systems of interest with areas thought to be producing significant agricultural nutrient loads and possessing significant implementation interests. These provisional basins represent areas of greatest opportunity in terms of need and potential for conservation delivery. Two tiers of pilot basins were identified for version 1.02 of the Conservation Blueprint. Tier 1 pilot basins have the highest nutrient load potential and the highest amount of watershed implementation interest, while Tier 2 pilot basins have either lower load potential or lower watershed implementation interest than Tier 1 pilot basins. Implementation opportunities...

Green infrastructure networks designed by The Conservation Fund for areas within the Mississippi River Basin. These green infrastructure networks were developed using the core-hub-corridor approach as follows. The building blocks of the network are “core areas” that contain well-functioning natural ecosystems that provide high-quality habitat for native plants and animals. By contrast, “hubs” are aggregations of core areas as well as nearby lands that contribute significantly to ecosystem services like clean water, flood control, carbon sequestration, and recreation opportunities. Finally, “corridors” are relatively linear features linking cores and hubs together, providing essential connectivity for animal, plant,...
