Conclusions: Report presents a framework for assessing the condition of Southern Alberta’s natural assets and their ability to provide ecosystem goods and services. Measurable indicators of ecosystem services, including broad and fine scale landscape indicators, were also distilled from a literature review. Thresholds/Learnings: Wetland cover should be maintained at >15% for watersheds with high potential for phosphorus loading & eutrophication. Impervious cover should be maintained at or below 25% in heavily urbanizing watersheds. Synopsis: This report develops a framework for assessing the condition of Southern Alberta’s natural assets and their resulting ability to provide ecosystem goods and services. The...
Conclusions:Water chemistry parameters sampled in downstream reaches were most closely correlated with riparian land cover adjacent to the smallest (first-order) streams of watersheds or land use in the entire watershed, with riparian zones immediately upstream of sampling sites offering less explanatory power as stream size increased.Thresholds/Learnings:
Conclusions: Report outlines habitat-based biodiversity standards specific to the prairie ecozone. It is intended to contribute to the delivery of habitat-based biodiversity standards in the prairie region via landscape-level indicators and targets Thresholds/Learnings: Synopsis: This report synthesizes the work completed to date on habitat-based biodiversity standards specific to the prairie ecozone. The intent of this report is to contribute to the delivery of habitat-based biodiversity standards in the Prairie region via landscape-level indicators and targets. Examples of key landscape targets for prairie landscapes that were identified included: * A minimum of 3 to 7% (<10%) of each major watershed should be...
