This dataset depicts privately owned lands for the Klamath-Siskiyou ecoregion. In 1999, the Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) concluded a conservation science assessment of the Klamath-Siskiyou ecoregion culminating in the report “A Science-based Conservation Assessment for the Klamath-Siskiyou Ecoregion.” Numerous ecological assessments were conducted and a conservation plan was proposed based on the results for special elements, ecosystem representation, and focal species. That study focused primarily on the public lands portion of the ecoregion. A private lands assessment for the World Wildlife fund began in 2002. The ecoregion encompasses southwestern Oregon and northwestern California, necessitating...

This dataset depicts portions of physical habitat types (from PhysicalHabitat grid) that are on privately owned lands for the Klamath-Siskiyou ecoregion. Cell resolution is 30 m. The PhysicalHabitat grid depicts classifed physical habitat types. The various physical habitat types were analyzed for the entire Klamath-Siskiyou ecoregion to determine the percentage of each type that is present in protected areas and roadless areas. An ordinal score was created by assigning a high conservation priority to types under-represented in these regions. In 1999, the Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) concluded a conservation science assessment of the Klamath-Siskiyou ecoregion culminating in the report “A Science-based...

Federal protected areas such as national parks and preserves and wildlife refuges cover large areas of the study area. Because of its remote location, few people visit the region for recreational use, and except for the Iditarod, activities are concentrated in the summer. Recreation in the region includes sport hunting, sport fishing, and general outdoor hiking and camping activities.

Background information.—Historically, the Powell River supported abundant and diverse populations of freshwater mussels. In recent decades, mussel density and species richness have declined and many freshwater mussel species are listed as either State or Federally threatened or endangered species. Environmental degradation from coal mining has been identified as one of the drivers of this decline. An example is the 1996 Lone Mountain slurry spill that directly affected mussel populations, as well as their host fish species. Freshwater mussels feed by filtering small particles from water, thereby improving water quality and providing an essential ecosystem service in rivers and streams. Mussels also serve as a food...

Background information. The Duncan Creek restoration area is located in Iron County, Utah. This area provides important habitat for mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus), and an increasing number of homes are located in the wildland-urban interface. Restoration efforts are focused on both habitat improvement and fire/fuels reduction. Restoration in this area is ongoing; this case study focuses on restoration activities that occurred primarily in 2012. During this period, restoration was accomplished on 2,080 acres of public and private lands. The project was funded by a variety of private, State, and Federal cooperators, including the Bureau of Land Management, Mule Deer Foundation, National Wild Turkey Federation, and...

This dataset depicts portions of vegetation cover (from the VegCover coverage) that are on privately owned lands for the Klamath-Siskiyou ecoregion. Cell resolution is 30 m. The VegCover coverage depicts vegetation cover, mainly emphasizing tree cover but also including shrub and grass cover types. In 1999, the Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) concluded a conservation science assessment of the Klamath-Siskiyou ecoregion culminating in the report “A Science-based Conservation Assessment for the Klamath-Siskiyou Ecoregion.” Numerous ecological assessments were conducted and a conservation plan was proposed based on the results for special elements, ecosystem representation, and focal species.

Background information. The Dinero Tunnel, which extends approximately 3,000 feet from the surface to the Dinero Shaft, was used in the late 1800s to mine primarily for silver. In more recent years, the tunnel, located approximately five miles west of Leadville, Colorado, began to discharge acid mine drainage into Sugarloaf Gulch, a tributary to the Lake Fork River which ultimately drains into the upper Arkansas River. Consequently, acid mine drainage from the Dinero Tunnel has significantly affected downstream waters, including a wet meadow and beaver pond complex. Occasionally, the Dinero Tunnel experienced blowouts that developed when temporary pressure would build up behind a blockage in the tunnel, which would...

Background information. Settlement funds from the California Gulch Superfund site have been used to improve instream aquatic habitat and increase brown trout (Salmo trutta) populations in the Arkansas River. The upper Arkansas River Basin is a high-elevation mountain river that supports trout populations. Historically characterized by a relatively narrow channel with fast moving water, recent degradation of the upper Arkansas River due to historic land-use practices have contributed to an altered river channel and a decrease in important habitat features for trout, such as deep-water pools. This restoration project was designed to address three major issues: bank erosion, altered river channel morphology, and degraded...

It is important to note that just because an area has high mineral potential does not mean it will be developed. There are several factors that go into starting up a mining endeavor. Also areas with high mineral potential inside protected areas are not likely to be developed.

The Agassiz Beach Ridges landscape is located in the Red River watershed of northwestern Minnesota and falls and is within the larger Prairie Pothole Region (PPR). The PPR has been identified as being responsible for producing 50–80 percent of the continent’s waterfowl while accounting for only 10% of the available breeding habitat. It is estimated that less than 1% of Minnesota’s historic native prairie remains intact, with much of the remnant prairie scattered about in small clusters. Restoration of key sites within this landscape has been identified as the most important strategy to create a contiguous expanse of prairie/wetland mosaic and improve the ecological functioning of these systems. In the fall of...

Background information. Characterized by a vast landscape dotted with sagebrush and juniper-clad foothills, the area surrounding the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM’s) Burley Field Office in Idaho is home to a variety of species, such as the greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus), mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus), antelope (Antilocapra americana), bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis), and pygmy rabbit (Brachylagus idahoensis). Many of these species depend on the sagebrush steppe ecosystem that was historically present in this region. Starting in the late 1800s with the Euroamerican settlement of the west, this sagebrush steppe ecosystem has been rapidly changing into woodlands dominated by Utah juniper (Juniperus...

Background information.— The Lone Mountain slurry spill injured two endangered fish species in the Powell River—the yellowfin madtom ( Noturus flavipinnis) and the slender chub ( Erimystax cahni). The yellowfin madtom was historically widespread throughout the Upper Tennessee River drainage but was presumed extinct at the time of its formal scientific description. The discovery of three surviving but geographically isolated populations in the late 1970s and early 1980s resulted in its listing as a threatened species. The slender chub was also once relatively common in the Powell River but is now listed as one of the most narrowly distributed minnows in North America. Both the yellowfin madtom and the slender chub...
