Description: This is the scenario summed solution from the low goals run. This is one of the four scenarios that were combined to form the basis of the regional conservation design. Regional Conservation Design generated by the Southern Sierra Partnership as part of the report ("Framework"): “ Framework for Cooperative Conservation and Climate Adaptation for the Southern Sierra Nevada and Tehachapi Mountains”. See Framework (Section 5.2, Table 7) for low and high goals for vegetation systems, rare plant substrate, etc.

Ecoregional assessments provide a regional scale, biodiversity-based context forimplementing conservation efforts. The intent of the assessments is to create a sharedvision for agencies and other organizations at the regional, state and local levels to formpartnerships and ensure efficient allocation of conservation resources. The assessments identify a portfolio of sites for conservation action with a goal of protecting representativebiodiversity and ecologically significant populations. These assessments are the result ofrigorous analysis, incorporating expert review, and are the most comprehensive and currentefforts that support spatially explicit priority setting at an ecoregional scale.

Compilation of USFS-CDF Calveg vegetation type mapping and Land Cover Mapping and Monitoring program Multi-source land cover layer. The Calveg data was given precedence when the two layers were merged; the multi-source data was used to fill in a few araes where Calveg was not completed. The Calveg data were downloaded in 2007 and may not be the most recent for some tiles.

This is the table used to represent the suitability or cost layer to be used in Marxan. Suitability is comprised of three weighted threats: Roads were weighted 2x, intensive agriculture 1x and housing density 5x. The local road & highway weighting was done before being combined with agriculture and housing density.

This is a set of scripts developed by Madeline Steele in 2013 as a part of the Arid Lands Initiative (ALI) spatial prioritization analysis. They are provided here both as methodological documentation and because they may be useful for other projects. They are not set up to be imported into an ArcGIS toolbox, and all path names would have to be changed before they could be used. They are commented, and variables should be at the top, but they are probably not very useful without a bit of previous Python experience. Please feel free to use and/or splice and dice these scripts, and contact Madeline if you have any questions.

Ecoregional assessments provide a regional scale, biodiversity-based context for implementing conservation efforts. The intent of the assessments is to create a share division for agencies and other organizations at the regional, state and local levels to form partnerships and ensure efficient allocation of conservation resources. The assessments identify a portfolio of sites for conservation action with a goal of protecting representative biodiversity and ecologically significant populations. These assessments are the result of rigorous analysis, incorporating expert review, and are the most comprehensive and current efforts that support spatially explicit priority setting at an ecoregional scale.

This project identifies priority areas in the Columbia Plateau Ecoregion to implement conservation strategies for riverine and riparian habitat. This is tailored towards the Arid Lands Initiative (ALI) conservation goals and objectives, and provides the foundation for adaptation to a changing climate. This project adopts a “zoned” approach to identifying focal areas, connectivity management zones and zones for riparian habitat and ecological representation. Through a series of workshops and webinars, the ALI articulated its freshwater conservation goals and targets. Key aspects of these goals included: a focus on non-anadromous salmonid (salmon and steelhead) species, include riparian birds and waterfowl as key...

This work represents a joint effort between Round River Conservation Studies (RRCS), The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), The Nature Conservancy – Alaska (TNC), with assistance from the Coastal Information Team (CIT) Ecosystem Spatial Analysis Planning Team. This effort included a diverse group of researchers from non-governmental and government agencies and represents a collective of researchers and practitioners in the fields of conservation biology, ecology, zoology, Geographical Information Systems (GIS), and land-use planning. To assist the Central Coast Land and Resource Management Planning (Central Coast LRMP) in its decision-making, the Ecosystem Spatial Analysis team was asked to explore a number of...

Planning area boundaries for Southern Sierra and Tehachapi Conservation Action Plans (project-level CAPs). Abridged versions of the two CAPs are presented in the Framework’s Appendix.
Government agencies that develop infrastructure such as roads, waterworks, and energy delivery often impact natural ecosystems, but they also have unique opportunities to contribute to the conservation of regional natural resources through compensatory mitigation. Infrastructure development requires a planning, funding, and implementation cycle that can frequently take a decade or longer, but biological mitigation is often planned and implemented late in this process, in a project-by-project piecemeal manner. By adopting early regional mitigation needs assessment and planning for habitat-level impacts from multiple infrastructure projects, agencies could secure time needed to proactively integrate these obligations...

Ecoregional assessments provide a regional scale, biodiversity-based context forimplementing conservation efforts. The intent of the assessments is to create a sharedvision for agencies and other organizations at the provincial or state, regional, and local levels to form partnerships and ensure efficient allocation of conservation resources. The assessments identify a portfolio of sites for conservation action with a goal of protecting representative biodiversity and ecologically significant populations. These assessments are the result of rigorous scientific analyses, which incorporate expert review, and are the most comprehensive and current efforts to set conservation priorities at an ecoregional scale.

Regional Conservation Design generated by the Southern Sierra Partnership as part of the report ("Framework"): “ Framework for Cooperative Conservation and Climate Adaptation for the Southern Sierra Nevada and Tehachapi Mountains”. It is a synthesis of the four scenarios. See section 5.0 of Framework for goals and methods. The Regional Conservation Design is the SSP’s spatial vision for conservation that takes into account the current distribution of biodiversity and threats as well as the projected effects of climate change in the region. The SSP’s Regional Conservation Design identifies a network of core areas and connections between them that support high biodiversity and valuable ecosystem services. ...

Regional Conservation Design generated by the Southern Sierra Partnership as part of the report ("Plan"): "Climate-adapted Conservation Plan for the Southern Sierra Nevada and Tehachapi Mountains".
The study area shows the boundary (black line) of Everglades Headwaters National Wildlife Refuge acquisition area. Existing protected areas are shown in green. The areas considered in refuge design is a more detailed map of study area showing boundary (black line) of Everglades Headwaters National Wildlife Refuge acquisition area, Conservation Focal Area or fee zone (blue), protected areas (green), and areas excluded from consideration for the reserve design (brown). Map reproduced from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (2012).
