This data layer represents a tested potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's Priority Resource (PR): Coastal Uplands. The suggested potential CT was Species Richness. Species Richness is one component of biodiversity, an important aspect of landscape conservation. Biodiversity is important for maintaining the balance of natural communities and ecosystems upon which humans also depend. Florida has a high level of species diversity and endemism but the state is experiencing threats to its natural heritage from a variety of sources. The data used in this analysis in addition to the Priority Resource layer is the Species Richness layer from the CLIP 4.0 geodatabase. The core layer of the geodatabase is from the...

These data show the potential for Coastal Uplands in Florida to migrate inland with Sea Level Rise (SLR) up to 1-meter. These analyses were created as part of the Landscape Conservation Project for the state of Florida. The project entails large scale assessment of the current status of important natural resources, known as Conservation Assets, as well as large scale coordinated conservation designed to optimize the value of conservation actions undertaken in Florida. The potential for Coastal Inland Migration is part of the assessment to determine the status of this ecological indicator and facilitate planning to ensure the future on Coastal Uplands given potential future conditions. The SLR was acquired from the...

The Conservation Assets of Florida represent the important Natural Resources. Coastal Uplands range from the surf zone to maritime hammocks in a generally narrow band of habitats along Florida's extensive coastlines. They represent important habitat for a variety of important species of conservation concern such as shorebirds, several species of beach mice, and others. Coastal Uplands have suffered from a variety of threats, including coastal development and heavy recreational use. Sea Level Rise poses a high threat to these habitats given their vulnerable location. Protection of Coastal Uplands provides a measure of safety for the future of Coastal Uplands. Protected Areas are generally safe from development and...

This is a ***draft*** for the Coastal Uplands Target showing the potential habitat for the five beach mice in Florida. It is likely not a good target because the mouse are found in small portions of scattered habitat that will not represent the entire coastal upland system for Florida

This layer shows the most recent sea turtle nesting data for Loggerhead Sea Turtles in Florida. These data were evaluated as a potential Conservation Target, orbiological indicator, for the Coastal Uplands Priority Resource. Sea turtle nesting data does not provide a good biological indicator because they show a high degree of philopatry to nesting beaches. Input: The State of Florida, through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, coordinates the Statewide Nesting Beach Survey program (SNBS). The SNBS was initiated in 1979 under a cooperative agreement between FWC and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Its purpose is to document the total distribution, seasonality,...
This project entails creation and refinement of the conservation targets for the terrestrial Priority Resources for the Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative. Potential Conservation Targets were developed through stakeholder Workshops held throughout the State of Florida in 2016/2017. Lists of potential CTs were generated through brainstorming and general discussion and stakeholders ranked the final list for suitability for using as a measure of Priority Resource health. The resulting list of potential CTs for the Coastal Uplands Priority Resource were explored and the results were presented to the Coastal Uplands team. The potential CTs were ranked according to the availability of data and suitability...

The layer was created from the Cooperative Land Cover 3.2 (November 2016). Coastal Uplands include the landcovers: Shell Mound, Sand Beach, Maritime Hammock, Coastal Strand, Coastal Grassland, Coastal Berm, and Beach Dune. Priority Resources represent portions of the Coastal Uplands are within Priorities 1 and 2 of the CLIP 4.0 Aggregated Model. CLIP 4.0 is a geodatabase with spatial models used in prioritizing conservation lands in Florida.
