Pine woodlands, savannas, and prairies- Acres of open canopy habitat that is regularly burned This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the pine woodland, savanna and prairies focal environment. To read more about the indicators and how they are being used, please visit the indicator page. 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. Target Double the acres burned on a regular basis Input Data Data from the LANDFIRE program <http://www.landfire.gov/> were used to quantify fire distribution. LANDFIRE is a cooperative project from The Nature Conservancy, USDA Forest...

These data show the Fire History Indicator for the Pine Flatwoods and Dry Prairie Conservation Asset in Florida. Fire Regime is an ecological indicator for the Pine Flatwoods and Dry Prairie Conservation Asset of the Florida Landscape Conservation Project (LCP). The LCP entails a large-scale assessment of and planning for the health of important natural resources, known as Conservation Assets (CAs), in Florida. Conservation planning at the landscape scale provides a framework for safeguarding functional ecosystems, and their interconnected processes required for maintaining healthy resources. Spatially explicit data from the project informs coordination and prioritization for making conservation decisions. A suite...

This dataset is intended to assess trends and percent change per year (PCPY) in yearly averages of pH within 300 meters of saltwater marsh. Assessments (condition) was classified depending on the following follow thresholds for PCPY: <= -1.0% - “Decreasing” > -1.0 & < 0.0% - “Stable (-)” = 0.0% - “Stable (No Change)” > 0.0 & < 1.0% - “Stable (+)” >= 1.0% - “Increasing”

This dataset is intended to assess trends and percent change per year (PCPY) in yearly averages of dissolved oxygen within 300 meters of coral & hardbottom. Assessments (condition) was classified depending on the following follow thresholds for PCPY: -1.0 & 0.0 & = 1.0% - “Increasing” This dataset is part of the Florida Landscape Conservation project. The project seeks to better understand the trends of indicators within prioritized conservation assets (or habitats). The trends and analysis carried by the project will be used to aid in informing management and conservation actions at, both, the broader and detailed spatial scales. Further information on the FLCP, conservation asset extent, and metadata: https://flcpa.databasin.org/datasets/ba218d714f094e68bbdb1a0f496c9e4e

This dataset is intended to assess trends and percent change per year (PCPY) in yearly averages of ammonia within 300 meters of mangrove swamp. Assessments (condition) was classified depending on the following follow thresholds for PCPY: <= -1.0% - “Decreasing” > -1.0 & < 0.0% - “Stable (-)” = 0.0% - “Stable (No Change)” > 0.0 & < 1.0% - “Stable (+)” >= 1.0% - “Increasing”

This indicator is a continuous index of highly productive areas for birds that feed exclusively or mainly at sea. It uses seasonal predictions of relative abundance for sixteen species of marine birds. Note: This indicator is at a 200 m resolution, which is coarser than other indicators used in the 2020 Blueprint.Reason for SelectionMarine birds help identify key areas of ocean productivity and overall ocean health, are regularly monitored, and resonate with a variety of audiences. This indicator complements the marine mammal index by providing finer spatial resolution and stronger connections to forage fish productivity.Input Data– Blueprint 2.1 ecosystem map (see Appendix A)– Potential species to include in this...

These data show the fire history indicator for Freshwater Non-Forested Wetlands (FNFW) through 2018. Fire Regime is an ecological indicator for the Landscape Conservation Project (LCP) for Florida. The LCP entails a large-scale assessment of and planning for the health of important natural resources, known as Conservation Assets (CAs), in Florida. Conservation planning at the landscape scale provides a framework for safeguarding functional ecosystems, and their interconnected processes required for maintaining healthy resources. Spatially explicit data from the project informs coordination and prioritization for making conservation decisions. Additionally, a suite of ecological indicators was carefully selected...
We assessed plant interspaces in July 2007 using continuous line intercepts in twice-replicated pastures of northern mixed-grass prairie with contrasting grazing treatments: 1) long-term (25 yr) heavily grazed, dominated by the bunchgrass blue grama (Bouteloua gracilis), and 2) ungrazed, dominated by the rhizomatous grass western wheatgrass (Pascopyrum smithii). The number of plant interspaces was 26% higher in pastures heavily grazed, but the amount of soil surface occupied by plant interspaces was 27% greater without grazing. Plant interspaces were larger without grazing (14.8�1.2 cm, mean�1 SE) than heavily grazed (8.9�0.4 cm). Plant interspaces represented 87% and 68% of the total soil surface in the ungrazed...

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...

This dataset combines "key ecological values" within intact forest landscapes in order to identify what can be called "key ecological areas" that is, the most valuable areas from an ecological perspective. Although intact forest landscapes have intrinsic value in themselves, identifying "key ecological values" within intact forest landscapes is challenging due to the limited amount of information on most remaining intact areas. It is also difficult to evaluate trade-offs in various prioritization schemes, as value judgments are required and values vary widely. In addition, the methodologies that have been developed for identifying and prioritizing values may not yet be sufficiently refined in order to receive...

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...
