Wetland Patch Size This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the estuarine ecosystem. It is an index based on the size of estuarine patches. Reason for Selection Larger, better connected wetlands are positively associated with fish (Meynecke et al. 2008), shrimp (Turner 1977), and marsh birds. In particular, seaside sparrow (Benoit and Askins 2002, Rush et al. 2009), saltmarsh sharp-tailed sparrow (Benoit and Askins 2002), and marsh wren (Rush et al. 2009) have been associated with marsh area effects. Other species are expected to be limited based on home range size. In addition, wave attenuation is increased with wetland area (Shepard et al. 2011). Over time, a decrease in patch size will correspond...

Pine and Prairie Birds This layer is an outdated version of one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the pine woodlands, savannas and prairies ecosystem. It is an index combining species distribution and census data for three pine and prairie bird species. This indicator was updated in Blueprint 2.1 to extend the Northern bobwhite and red-cockaded woodpecker data to new areas of the pine and prairie ecosystem map. Reason for Selection This species index represents the structure and function of pine ecosystems in the Southeast. Input Data The distribution of red-cockaded woodpecker ( Picoides borealis), Northern bobwhite ( Colinus virginianus), and Bachman's sparrow ( Aimophila aestivalis) are included in the...

Pine and Prairie Amphibians This layer is an outdated version of one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the pine woodland, savanna and prairie ecosystem. It captures Priority Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Areas in the pine and prairie ecosystem. This indicator was updated in Blueprint 2.1 to extend it to new areas of the pine and prairie ecosystem map. 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 whose purpose is to raise public awareness and spark voluntary action...

Water-Vegetation Edge This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the estuarine ecosystem. It is an index capturing the length of the edge between open water and estuarine vegetation. Reason for Selection The density and abundance of shrimp, crab, fish, and other nekton are strongly correlated with the open water-vegetation edges (Minello et al. 2003). In a review of nekton species and coastal habitats, open water-vegetation edge was cited as having the second most dense nekton populations (i.e., first being submerged aquatic vegetation, or SAV) (Minello et al. 2003). In particular, the first 1 m of open water near wetlands is often noted as having the highest density of nekton (Minello and Rozas...

Coastal Condition (Estuarine Marsh) This layer is an older version of 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. This indicator was updated with more current data in Blueprint 2.1 and is delivered in combination with the estuarine open water portion of coastal 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...

Regularly Burned Habitat This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the pine woodland, savanna and prairie ecosystem. It captures acres of fire-maintained, open canopy pine and prairie habitat. Reason for Selection This indicator represents the overall structure and condition of the habitat, is regularly monitored, and is widely used and understood by diverse partners. LANDFIRE is regularly updated. Input Data -- Data from the LANDFIRE program (also known as the Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools) were used to quantify fire distribution. LANDFIRE is a cooperative project from The Nature Conservancy, the USDA Forest Service, Department of the Interior, and other agencies. Specifically,...
