This map represents a potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's 'Pine Flatwoods and Dry Prairie' (PFDP) Priority Resource (PR). The potential CT is 'Dry Prairie Bird Index.' The birds included in this index are: Florida Grasshopper Sparrow, Burrowing Owl, and Crested Caracara. These layers were created for an initial investigation of potential CT's suggested by stakeholders during brainstorming workshops. The initial investigation entails locating available datasets to address the suggested CT as closely as possible and performing minimal analyses to determine their usefulness. The final set of CT's and their associated datasets will be chosen after targets (e.g., endpoints) are established as a threshold for...

These data represent a potential Conservation Target for Working Lands (WL) Priority Resource of the PFLCC. The potential Conservation Target is fire regime, an important factor for maintaining some types of forestry and agriculture. At this time, the USGS Landfire data set is the only available spatial data that indicate fire status of an area. Landfire data are intended for use in larger contexts that Florida working lands unless additional efforts are made to refine data for a smaller area. In our situation, landfire is an interim data set only because a refined fire database is currently in development for Florida. The refined database will be based on both burn permit records as well as remote sensing and...

This layer shows the results for the initial analysis of the potential Conservation Target, Connectivity, for the High Pine and Scrub Priority Resource (PR). Two datasets were used in this exploration of Connectivity: CLIP 4.0 Greenways and the Local Connectedness layer, one of the core datasets in the Nature Conservancy's Resiliency Project. Each dataset provides a slightly different aspect of Connectivity. Each one of the potential data layers was masked using the PR raster to result in a spatial data layer of values within High Pine and Scrub PR. Further information on these analyses can be found in the High Pine and Scrub Initial Investigation of Conservation Targets webinar (pdf) found in this gallery. Inputs:...

This map was created from the Greenways Core Layer of CLIP 4.0. This layer was created as part of the Florida Ecological Greenways Network GIS Database. The Florida Ecological Greenways Network (FEGN) identifies the opportunities to protect large, intact landscapes important for conserving Florida’s biodiversity and ecosystem services, and serves as a backbone for biodiversity and ecosystem protection efforts in Florida. An important goal of the FEGN is to protect a functionally connected network of public and private conservation lands from the tip of south Florida to the tip of the Florida panhandle while also potentially providing functional connectivity to conservation lands in Georgia and Alabama.

The data layer represents a potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's Connectivity Priority Resource(PR). The potential Conservation Target is the quality of the connections of the PR. The analysis on the Connectivity Priority Resource was performed using the Local Connectedness core layer of the Nature Conservancy's Resiliency Project. The Local Connectedness is an evaluation of the Land Use and Roads around each pixel to determine the resistance to movement of microhabitats across the landscape in the advent of local climate change. Reported metrics, however, reflect the opposite of resistance, instead the permeability of the landscape and are reported as Z-scores around the regional mean index value. ...

This map shows the land covers (based on CLC 3.2) that are included in PFLCC's Hardwood Forested Uplands Priority Resource (at a 15m x 15m resolution). The Hardwood Forested Uplands Priority Resource is derived from the CLC v. 3.2. The land covers are then further refined using priorities 1 and 2 from CLIP 4.0 Aggregated Priorities model. The Aggregated Priorities model, which combines conservation priorities from the Biodiversity, Landscapes, and Surface Waters Resource Priority models, and the underlying CLIP Core Data layers. Priorities range from 1 (highest priority) to 5 (lowest). Florida Natural Areas Inventory and the University of Florida Center for Landscape Conservation Planning. (See technical report...

This layer depicts a potential Conservation Target for PFLCC's Priority Resource: Freshwater Aquatics. The potential Conservation Target is the Connectivity of the Freshwater Aquatics. The layer was created using a 300-m buffer around the Priority Resource to mask the Landscape Integrity layer of CLIP 4.0 to depict the landscape surrounding the PR. This map was created during an initial investigation of data availability and usefulness for developing final Conservation Targets.

This data layer represents a potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's Priority Resource (PR): High Pine and Scrub. The potential CT shown here is the Florida Scrub Jay. The Florida Scrub Jay is the only species of bird that is unique to Florida. Scrub Jays are cooperative breeders that inhabitat the highest and driest areas of Florida -- xeric oak scrub and scrubby flatwoods. They do best in areas with large quantities of oak shrubs that average 3-6.5 feet. The Florida Scrub Jay is a federally threatened species. The Primary threats are habitat destruction, fragmentation, and degradation from development and agriculture. As an important species of the scrub portion of this PR, it may be an important Conservation...

In 2006, the Century Commission for a Sustainable Florida called for an identification of those lands and waters in the state that are critical to the conservation of Florida’s natural resources. In response, the Florida Natural Areas Inventory, University of Florida Center for Landscape Conservation Planning, and Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission collaborated to produce CLIP - the Critical Lands and Waters Identification Project. CLIP is now being used to inform planning decisions by the Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative, coordinated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Priority resources are the set of biological, ecological, and cultural features and ecological processes collaboratively identified as most important or most significant for the focus geography. These resources embody the key components of the Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative (PFLCC) vision, which is a collective vision that reflects the mission, vision, common interests, and values of the focus geography partners. The priority resources are the focus of the PFLCC’s planning, design and implementation of conservation strategies(Benscoter et al. 2015). In Spring 2015, PFLCC’s Steering committee unanimously voted to adopt the SWAP ( the Florida State Wildlife Action Plan) habitats as the basis...
