(A newer version of these data is now available, Protected Areas - Tennesse, October 2012 ) This dataset is an extraction from PAD-US 1.1 (CBI Edition), by state. The PAD-US 1.1 (CBI Edition) data set portrays the nation's protected areas with a standardized spatial geometry and numerous valuable attributes on land ownership, management designations, and conservation status (using national GAP and international IUCN coding systems). The PAD-US 1.1 (CBI Edition) defines protected areas to include all lands dedicated to the preservation of biological diversity and to other natural, recreation and cultural uses, and managed for these purposes through legal or other effective means (adapted from IUCN definition). The...
The workshop “How to Adapt to Climate Change” was held on May 10, 2015 at the University of Victoria by B.C. Parks and Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium (PCIC). The goal of this workshop was to introduce protected area managers to the concept of rapid assessment and conceptual modelling for adaptation to climate change. It was led by Tory Stevens (B.C. Parks) and Trevor Murdoch (PCIC).The workshop was attended by several participants that are protected area mangers and other interested parties from B.C. Parks, the Capital Regional District, Parks Canada, Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks and Ekos Communications.
This polygon data set includes the protected areas of North America that are managed by national, state, provincial, or territorial authorities. As defined by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), a protected area is an “area of land and/or sea especially dedicated to the protection and maintenance of biological diversity, and of natural and associated cultural resources, and managed through legal or other effective means.” The data set was assembled from other public data sets containing data on protected areas in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. Protected area data were obtained from Natural Resources Canada and the Quebec Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and Parks...
Protected areas were used to determine the amount of human disturbance within the analysis unit for Columbia spotted frog modeled habitat. GAP status 1 and 2 areas were extracted from the USGS protected areas database and used within zonal statistics to determine the amount of the analysis unit within protected areas.> 60 % = good25-60% = moderate
Prioritization for protection of habitat (via acquisition or easements), based on local scale ecological integrity, degree of threats faced, potential conservation opportunities, and conservation value of surrounding landscape. In contrast to ecological integrity ratings; threat, opportunity and landscape rankings are largely based on the range of values of any given indicator across the geography, sorted by quantile. There are some exceptions, particularly for indicators used to develop threat rankings (e.g., urban development risk). EEMS is a tree-based, fuzzy logic modeling system, where output values range from -1 to +1, indicating whether a given output is entirely FALSE or TRUE, respectively. Indicators with...
