This map represents a potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's 'Hardwood Forested Uplands' (HFU) Priority Resource (PR). The potential CT is Landscape Configuration. This layer was created for an initial investigation of potential CT's suggested at brainstorming workshops. The initial investigation entails locating available datasets to address the suggested CT as closely as possible and performing minimal analyses to determine their usefulness. The final set of CT's and their associated datasets will be chosen after targets (e.g., endpoints) are established as a threshold for achieving conservation success for that CT. The available data layer to address landscape configuration is CLIP 4.0 core data -- Landscape...

These data represent a potential Conservation Target for the Working Lands Priority Resource of the PFLCC. The potential Conservation Target for Working Lands is Configuration or Landscape Integrity. Two data sets are included that address different aspects of configuration for our Priority Resources. The CLIP 4.0 Landscape Integrity Priority layer provides a measure of Landscape Integrity at the largest scale, putting the integrity of Working Lands within context of the overall landscape integrity of the natural habitats of the region. For additional metadata on The CLIP 4.0 data see the CLIP 4.0 data gallery located within the PFLCC Community. The Nature Conservancy also evaluated landscape integrity at...

Conclusions: Seismic cutline proportion did not explain landscape use by grizzly bears, but secondary effects of cutlines on landscape structure did. Declining use was mainly associated with increasing proportions of closed forest, and increasing variation of inter-patch distances, while use was mainly increasing with increasing mean patch size. Thresholds/Learnings: Bears appear to use areas more when landscape patches tend to be larger, and mean patch size is generally reduced with additional seismic cutlines. Also, bears appear to use areas more when landscape patches are consistently spaced, and the spacing between landscape patches becomes more variable with additional seismic cutlines. Synopsis: This study...
