Proxy herbaceous land (Grassland/Pasture & Other Hay/Non-Alfalfa classes) patches, minimum size - 1 acre, from the 2013 Cropland Data Layer within the Mississippi River Basin and used to evaluate landscape context of grazing land. May include pasture or hay lands in addition to native grasslands.

NRCS Common Resource Areas (CRA), version 1.2. A Common Resource Area is defined as a geographical area where resource concerns, problems, or treatment needs are similar. It is considered a subdivision of an existing Major Land Resource Area (MLRA) map delineation or polygon. Landscape conditions, soil, climate, human considerations, and other natural resource information are used to determine the geographic boundaries of a CRA. Features have been conflated with land cover attributes pertinent to the MRB/GHI e.g. cropland, forest, prairie, etc.

The Greater Sage Grouse Focal Area represents an area of interest pertaining to the greater sage grouse under the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW) Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP).Working Lands for Wildlife is a partnership between NRCS and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to use agency technical expertise and financial assistance from the Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program to combat the decline of seven specific wildlife species whose decline can be reversed and will benefit other species with similar habitat needs. The WLFW project will target species whose decline can be reversed and will benefit other species...

This dataset displays polygon data for Corridors and Key Habitat Areas in the United States.-Key Migration Corridors where bird risk will differ from season to season, and may also differ from year to year among specific locations within the corridor.-Key Habitat Areas for birds on the Red WatchList (plus both widespread eagle species, and Ferruginous Hawk), where the species may not be present year round. Birds are likely to be most at risk from wind development where their optimal habitat is found within the tinted area.

Estimated number of breeding pairs of Clay-colored sparrow based on the amount of grass, trees, and/or hay in the landscape. Landscape scale varied from 1/4- to 2-mile radius depending on the species. Pair estimates were calculated for grass patches >=1 ha, extrapolated to 40-ac cells, then smoothed by averaging over a 1-mile radius. Models were based on point count surveys conducted in 2003-2005 throughout the Tallgrass Prairie Pothole Region. Point count locations were stratified by cover type, the amount of grass in the landscape, and USFWS Wetland Management District boundaries. Landcover data were derived from 2000 Thematic Mapper imagery. Grid values = number of breeding pairs per 30-m pixel.

Predictions of the number of upland nesting duck pairs (mallards, blue-winged teal, gadwall, northern pintail, and northern shoveler) that could potentially nest in the upland habitats of every 40 acre block of the Prairie Pothole Region (PPR). These predictions are based on the known maximum travel distances of hens from wetlands to their nest sites, and regressions (statistical models) created from 4 square mile survey data predicting the number of duck pairs that utilize every individual wetland in PPR during a “typical” breeding season. GRID CODE = Number of Duck Pairs: 1 = 0-10; 2 = 11-20; 3 = 21-40; 4 = 41-60; 5 = 61-80; 6 = 81-100; 7 = >100.

Predicted greater prairie chicken habitat - Iowa Wildlife Action Plan (2007). Landscape suitability was mapped by applying a model developed for Northwest Minnesota to the 2001 National Land Cover Data for Iowa. Logistic regression was used to compare landscape characteristics between booming grounds and random sites. The model is based on the assumption that areas classified as hayland are equivalent to grassland habitat. In addition to providing information about the Greater Prairie-Chicken, this map is included as a representation of the location of mid-grass habitat in amounts significant enough to support grassland species more generally. Model developed by USFWS.

Low-lying areas (1-acre minimum) within the MRB/GHI Water Quality Priority Zone derived from 30-m NED DEM Topographic Position Index (180-m radius) values less than 1/4 standard deviation below the mean. Used as an aid in identifying wetland restoration potential.

This layer displays Conservation Opportunity Areas (COA’s), which are places in Pennsylvania that represent clusters of Species, as well as most critically imperiled plants and their associated habitats where collaborative conservation action should be targeted. The COAs are intended to complement, not replace, other conservation planning efforts, by providing specific recommendations focused on Species and their habitats.

This layer depicts U.S. Forest Service ecological subsections, which were used to define potential geographic focus areas for the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Wildlife Action Plan. Each subsection was ranked using both quantitative and qualitative criteria and using the ranks revised based on peer review and expert opinion. For methodology relating to this ranking please visit the Montana Comprehensive Fish and Wildlife Management Strategy website at http://fwp.mt.gov/specieshabitat/strategy/default.html.

Conservation Opportunity Areas (COAs) are large, loosely defined, geographic areas within Mississippi that have been identified by MDWFP as priority areas for implementing conservation actions recommended in Mississippi’s State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP). They may contain priority habitats or Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN), represent areas that have unique habitats (e.g. prairies) within them but they are composed of many different habitats, or may have been chosen because they have a wide range of SGCN, or include areas that are particularly important to one SGCN.

The Mississippi River Basin / Gulf Hypoxia Initiative (MRB/GHI), spearheaded by seven LCCs, is undertaking a strategic and transparent process to create an integrated framework that supports planning, design, configuration, and delivery of wildlife conservation practices within the watershed. This framework consists of multiple quantitative objectives representing three interests (i.e., wildlife, water quality, agriculture), a tiered set of conservation strategies to achieve those objectives within five production agriculture systems (i.e., corn & soybean; grazing lands; floodplain forest; rice; cotton), and a modeling approach to determine where to best implement those actions within four key ecological systems...

Coastal ecosystems in the eastern U.S. have been severely altered by local processes associated with human development, including drainage of coastal wetlands, hydrologic alterations affecting sediment supply, and land-use change, and by global-scale ecological changes including sea-level rise and other effects associated with climate change. Together, these forces are degrading the capacity of ecological and social systems to respond to disturbance. The goal of this project was to foster active engagement with stakeholders; develop a comprehensive problem definition that expressed local values, knowledge, and perceptions; and encourage building of effective networks and trust across organizations and individuals...
