Economic sideboards and regulatory constraints impacting private landowners pilot programs to address the conservation objectives of the Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative
Under this agreement, the Mr Hankla developed and facilitated implementation of pilot programs addressing the conservation objectives of the PFLCC within the economic sideboards and regulatory constraints impacting private landowners. These pilot programs are applicable to a range of landowners (owners of both large and small parcels), and a diversity of land management and land use interests from high intensity agriculture and development to low intensity grazing and forestry.
This project will conduct a synthesis of marine spatial data. An OPS staff will be hired to work with marine/coastal experts – to develop a Technical Advisory Group and gather data and input on the processes used in the marine assessment. Additionally, this project will identify key inland (terrestrial and freshwater) areas that currently have or may have in the future direct and indirect impacts on the health of the marine environment. Results of this project will be the basis for the marine component of the Landscape Conservation Design being developed by the Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative. Every effort will be made to build upon existing science and other ongoing projects that may be developing...
During 2015, Dr. Michael Flaxman will provide support for linking a number of projects with the Peninsular Florida landscape Conservation Cooperatives (PFLCC) tools.
The PFLCC has recently completed a set of comprehensive conservation planning scenarios for the state of Florida. This represents the first statewide effort to assess likely alternative futures for conservation considering an array of financial, biological, climatological and urbanistic conditions. These spatially explicit and temporal scenarios simulate both urban growth and climate change and identify the most suitable areas for conservation given the resulting land use pattern. Conservation allocations are based on both fee-title and conservation easements.The conservation priorities and mechanisms expressed in these scenarios are based on a wide set of contributing factors, and simulated conservation is purposefully...
Objective: During 2015, Dr. Romanach will provide support for linking a number of projects with the Peninsular Florida landscape Conservation Cooperatives (PFLCC) tools. These projects include but are not limited to:a. Climate envelop modeling updatesb. SE connectivity project modelingc. Everglades Headwaters NWR optimization modelingd. EverVIEW Visualization tool
