These geographic constructs for the GCPO LCC are derived mostly from the BCR boundaries (Important to formulating JV boundaries c)  within the GCPO except the Gulf Coastal Area.  The Gulf Coastal area was defined on the west by the new MAV boundary and on the north with the Gulf Coast JV/ Southern Coastal Plain Omernik Level 3 ecoregion. Landscape conservation cooperatives (LCCs) are conservation-science partnerships between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and other federal agencies, states, tribes, NGOs, universities and stakeholders within a geographically defined area. They inform resource management decisions to address national-scale stressors-including habitat fragmentation,...

The Tennessee Heritage Conservation Trust Fund Act of 2005, was a cooperative project of the Tennessee Department of Agriculture, Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, and Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency to assess the conservation needs of Tennessee and to "assist the state in permanently conserving and preseving tracts of land within the state of Tennessee for the purposes of promoting tourism and recreation, including outdoor activities such as hunting and fishing; protecting, conserving and restoring the state's physical, cultural, archeological, historical and environmental resources; and preserving working landscapes." This dataset represents tracts of land that were identified for protection,...

This map layer is commonly called Bailey’s ecoregions and shows ecosystems of regional extent in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Four levels of detail are included to show a hierarchy of ecosystems. The largest ecosystems are domains, which are groups of related climates and which are differentiated based on precipitation and temperature. Divisions represent the climates within domains and are differentiated based on precipitation levels and patterns as well as temperature. Divisions are subdivided into provinces, which are differentiated based on vegetation or other natural land covers. The finest level of detail is described by subregions, called sections, which are subdivisions of...

A decision support tool (DST) is used to help inform, guide and support habitat planning decisions. It is not designed to make the decision for the user of the DST The Open Pine management DST is designed for landscape scale planning decisions. Habitat types used for this tool are based on 2001 National Land Cover Data (NLCD). The accuracy of the NLCD classification may vary across the West Gulf Coastal Plain and local managers may find erroneous classifications for their particular tract(s) of land. Currently, no other comprehensive data set with greater accuracy exists to replace NLCD for the entire West Gulf Coastal Plain region. Three umbrella species’ habitat requirements were used to develop the minimum patch...

The grassland condition index raster data layer assigns to each 30 meter pixel in the GCPO a condition index score generated by the presence or absence of a set of desired conditions such as patch size, vegetation height, etc. This grassland bar code layer indicates which conditions contributed to the index value score, and by how much, by use of a nine-digit code. The digits in the code represent the following input conditions in order: potential for restoration, presence of a grassland ecological system, presence of prairie (a subset of grasslands characterized by the presence or dominance of native vegetation), configuration in a patch > 100 acres, and the four site-level condition endpoints: vegetation height...

This dataset was created to locate source populations of quail in the West Gulf Coastal Plain. The values in this raster depict the number of birds in a 4,500 ha area. The Lower Mississippi Valley Joint Venture used the value of at least 400 birds per 4,500 ha to define a source population. However, this raster contains the "raw" numbers so the user can experiment with thresholds. In this raster the numbers represent quail per 4,500 hectares, and the raster is comprised of 500 hectare pixels.

The amount, configuration, and condition of grasslands, prairies, and savannas in the Gulf Coastal Plains and Ozarks Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GCPO LCC) was assessed at 30 meter spatial resolution. Each pixel was assigned a score based on a dichotomous decision tree evaluating the following: whether described as a grassland ecological system class, if not, whether potentially restorable to grassland, if grassland, whether dominated by native plants (prairie), whether in a patch >100 acres in size, and whether described as having any of four condition endpoints: vegetation height (> 1 meter), vegetation cover (> 80% herbaceous or < 20% shrub), tree density (< 10 trees per acre), and disturbance pattern...

The Tensas Basin portion of the study area is that part of the Mississippi Alluvial Valley within Louisiana that is bounded by the Mississippi River mainstem levee on the east, Macon Ridge and the uplands southwest of Sicily Island on the west, the Red River levee on the south, and the Arkansas State line on the north. The Tensas River and Bayou Macon are the principal streams in the northern and central parts of the study area, and Black River drains the southern part, where it is formed from the confluence of the Tensas with the Ouachita River entering the basin from the west. Various smaller streams arise within the basin and flow to one of those major drainages. The Mississippi River on the eastern boundary...

The area designated as the Ouachita Basin for the purposes of this mapping effort is that portion of the Mississippi Alluvial Valley within Louisiana that includes the Ouachita River lowlands and Macon Ridge. Although the Ouachita River is the largest stream present, the lowland portion of the study area is usually considered to be part of the Bouef Basin, one of six major lowland areas that comprise the Mississippi Alluvial Valley. Macon Ridge is not normally considered part of any lowland basin but is included in this PNV mapping effort as part of the Ouachita Basin, because most of the internal drainage of Macon Ridge flows to the Ouachita lowlands. Â The landscape of the Ouachita Basin includes unique features,...

The Yazoo Basin is located in northwestern Mississippi where it is bounded on the east by rolling uplands and on the west by the mainstem levee system along the Mississippi River. It is about 200 miles long, extending from Memphis to Vicksburg, and has an area of about 7,600 square miles. Except during major floods, surface water entering the Yazoo Basin arrives as precipitation or as runoff from the hills along the eastern flank of the basin. The only surface outlet is through the Yazoo River, which enters the Mississippi River at the southern end of the basin near Vicksburg. Most surface water discharge in the Yazoo River originates in the uplands along the eastern flank of the basin and is carried to the Yazoo...

REVISED JUNE 2013The St. Francis Basin lies in northeastern Arkansas and southeastern Missouri. This map includes only the Arkansas portion of the basin. The eastern boundary is defined by the mainstem Mississippi River levee, and the western boundary is Crowley’s Ridge.  More than 2 million acres are included in the mapped area. The principal streams are the St. Francis, Tyronza, and Little Rivers. Within Arkansas, approximately half the St. Francis Basin is made up of recent (Holocene) meander belt deposits of the Mississippi River and smaller streams. These include poorly-drained backswamps, better-drained point bars, and well-drained natural levees. Abandoned channel segments form crescent-shaped...

This data set represents the extent, approximate location and type of wetlands and deepwater habitats in the United States and its Trust Territories. These data delineate the areal extent of wetlands and surface waters as defined by Cowardin et al. (1979). Certain wetland habitats may be excluded because of the limitations of aerial imagery as the primary data source used to detect wetlands. These habitats include seagrasses or submerged aquatic vegetation that are found in the intertidal and subtidal zones of estuaries and near shore coastal waters. Some deepwater reef communities (coral or tuberficid worm reefs) have also been excluded from the inventory. These habitats, because of their depth, go undetected by...
