Final Report: Conservation Framework for Priority Species of Grassland-Shrublands of the Southern Great Plains
This project resulted in the development of a conservation framework to further the conservation of grassland-shrublands in the area encompassed by the Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GCP LCC). The project used the Black-capped Vireo (Vireo atricapilla) as a focal species for developing the five deliverables of this project. Additionally, we included two more avian species of conservation priority (Bell’s Vireo [V. bellii] and Painted Bunting [Passerina ciris]), and an additional three species that are of particular interest to land owners and managers (Northern Bobwhite [Colinus virginianus], White-tailed Deer [Odocoileus virginianus], and Wild Turkey [Meleagris gallopavo]) to ensure that...
The Commission on Environmental Cooperation, in concert with a trinational group of experts, has identified North American species of common conservation concern (SCCC). These terrestrial and marine species comprise a group of important migratory, transboundary and endemic species selected from among the continent’s great wealth of wild flora and fauna, which require regional cooperation for their effective conservation.
GAP species range data shows a coarse representation of the total areal extent of a species or the geographic limits within which a species can be found (Morrison and Hall 2002). To represent these geographic limits, GAP compiled existing GAP data, where available, and NatureServe data (Patterson et al. 2003, Ridgely et al. 2007, NatureServe 2010) IUCN data (IUCN 2004), where needed. Data provided by GAP in collaboration with Southwest Regional Gap Analysis Project (SWReGAP) and the Southeast Gap Analysis Project (SEGAP) . Bird data provided by NatureServe in collaboration with Robert Ridgely, James Zook, The Nature Conservancy ? Migratory Bird Program, Conservation International ? Center for Applied Biodiversity...
Grassland-shrubland prairie has been important to the livelihoods of generations of ranchers; to the hunting community because of prized game species; and to endangered species, such as the black-capped vireo, as habitat. In the past, the interests of ranchers, hunters, and endangered species have come into conflict because of increasing pressures on the prairie from land use conversion, new development, and habitat fragmentation. Greater collaboration in advancing mutual interests would greatly expand and improve Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative partners’ efforts to conserve the remaining prairie habitats of the southern Great Plains.
The online tool is a web-based tool allowing users to find relevant information for conservation planning and about BMP. The tool has two components, one for conservation planning by conservation organizations and one for implementation of BMP by landowners and land managers (described in the BMP section below). The conservation planning tool operates at the broad spatial scale of recovery regions and at a landscape scale, whereas the BMP are for a smaller spatial scale, particularly a specific property. The overall goal of the conservation planning tool is to provide relevant information to conservation organizations and private landowners about the current status of, threats to, and potential for wildlife habitat...
