This dataset is made up of features aggregated from Ecoregional Assessments as well as other planning methodologies used across The Nature Conservancy to identify areas of biodiversity significance and prioritize conservation action. More information about ecoregional assesments and other conservation planning methodologies is available at The Nature Conservancy's Conservation Gateway, the Ecoregional Assessment Status Tool (EAST), and at http://maps.tnc.org. The BLM has been granted permission from The Nature Conservancy to publish this dataset, which is a snapshot of the Ecoregional Portfolio dataset taken when the REA analysis was completed. Users are encouraged to request the most current dataset directly from...

Due to the great differences in knowledge and availability of information on the biodiversity of the different marine regions from Mexico, it was decided to use the opinion of experts for the identification of the high-priority sites for the conservation of the marine biodiversity that includes coasts, the oceans and islands. For this aim, an experts workshop was conducted in October 2005 to determine the marine and coastal high-priority sites for conservation in Mexico. The workshop was organized by CONABIO, CONANP, Pronatura and TNC. After the workshop, the resulting sites were delimited and validated by means of an internet Wiki site, which served like a vestibule for the exchange of information and opinions...

Sum of all conservation focus areas (CFA) for a particular area (UPDATED TO INCLUDE CONSERVATION PRIORITIES DELINEATED IN LATEST STATE WILDLIFE ACTION PLANS (ca. 2015/2016)). These focus areas include both those delineated at the state scale as well as regionally. States focus areas are included for all states in the Mississippi River Basin that have delineated focus/opportunity areas. States that are not included either have not delineated focus areas or were in the process of developing them at the time of data collection. States where CFA are pending: Texas and Wyoming. States where CFA have not been identified: Georgia; Maryland; Michigan; New Mexico; New York; and Oklahoma. Regional focus area include those...

This geodatabase contains geographic and tabular information pertaining to priority conservation areas in western North America. The region encompasses a sequence of mountain ranges, including the Rocky Mountains, that form the backbone or spine of the western North America, along with the surrounding deserts and semi-arid lands. Priority conservation areas (hereafter referred to as conservation areas) are geographic areas that have been selected because of the sensitive biological species, habitats, and features (hereafter referred to as targets) that are known to occur in these areas. Conservation, protection, and management actions within these areas should be prioritized in order to ensure persistence and survival...

Includes all values from "Sum - Conservation Focus Areas (2016)" as well as the number of implementation interests or priorities summed at the HU-8 level (Sum - Watershed Implementation Interests (2016)). Conservation focus areas include both those delineated at the state scale (e.g. Wildlife Action Plans) as well as regionally; compiled from state, federal, and NGO sources. Watershed implementation interests represent areas identified as a focus for investment to improve either water quality or aquatic habitat. Data was compiled from state, federal, regional, and non-governmental organizations including, but not limited to USDA-NRCS, USEPA, USFWS, Fish Habitat Partnerships, Gulf Hypoxia Task Force, and State Nutrient...

This database contains physical and biological data for the Lower Colorado River Basin. The metrics include information on geology, hydrology, landcover, stewardship, topography, soil types and characteristics, stream characteristics, connectivity, and watershed position (information on where a stream segment or catchment is located in relationship to other segments or catchments; e.g. distance from a catchment to the mouth of the Colorado River, Shreve Link). In addition, there is a table with predicted probability of species occurrence for the connected stream segments and tables with the data used in those models. The species distribution models were completed for 18 native fish species and 21 non-native fish...
