Following an explosion at the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig on April 20, 2010, MC252 an estimated 3.19 million barrels of oil leaked into the Northern Gulf of Mexico over 87 days. The endangered Kemp's ridley sea turtle (Lepidochelys kempii [Lk]) has a long established record of using the area near the well as primary foraging grounds. Resulting short- and long-term negative impacts of the oil spill on sea turtles could induce changes in the health and fitness of the Lk population. MC252 oil is known to have entered the foraging areas. Consequently, stable carbon and nitrogen isotope signatures from MC252 oil should be reflected in the food web and in the tissues of organisms such as sea turtles. We measured carbon...

In addition to current distribution of each reptile species, this map shows their current and near-term status within the ecoregion. Current, long-term, and summary bioclimate data is also include for several of these reptile species. The input datasets used in the distribution model are also included. These data are provided by Bureau of Land Management (BLM) "as is" and may contain errors or omissions. The User assumes the entire risk associated with its use of these data and bears all responsibility in determining whether these data are fit for the User's intended use. These data may not have the accuracy, resolution, completeness, timeliness, or other characteristics appropriate for applications that potential...

As the third largest federal land manager in the United States (Keystone Center 1996a), the Department of Defense (DoD) mandates the conservation and wise management of the natural resources on military installations. To this end, DoD policy directs each Army installation to produce an Integrated Natural Resource Management Plan (INRMP), the purpose of which is to “ensure that natural resource conservation measures and Army activities on mission land are integrated and consistent with federal stewardship requirements” (Army Goals and Implementing Guidance for Natural Resource Planning Level Surveys and Integrated Natural Resource Management Plans, 21 March 1997). The basic goal of this INRMP is to support and sustain...

This 5-year update of the Integrated Natural Resources Management Plan (INRMP) has been prepared for Edwards Air Force Base (AFB), California, as required by the Sikes Improvement Act of 1997 and Air Force Instruction 32-7064, Integrated Natural Resources Management. The INRMP is based on ecosystem management principles and identifies responsibilities for management of natural resources, land use and mission activities and their potential effects on the environment, descriptions of the physical and ecosystem environments, mission impacts on natural resources, natural resources program management, and management goals and objectives. The INRMP also includes specific management methods, schedules of activities and...

REAs synthesize the best available information about resource conditions and trends within an ecoregion. They highlight and map areas of high ecological value, including important wildlife habitats and corridors, and gauge their potential risks from climate change, wildfires, invasive species, energy development, and urban growth. REAs also map areas that have high energy development potential, and relatively low ecological value, which could be best-suited for siting future energy development. In addition, REAs establish landscape-scale baseline ecological data to gauge the effect and effectiveness of future management actions. The Mojave Basin and Range REA was initiated in July 2010. It has been completed and...

The Nature Conservancy has been a leader in spatial conservation planning for many years. The primary planning tool used by the Conservancy for landscape-scale conservation planning over the past decade has been Ecoregional Assessments. Our United States Ecoregional Assessments identify priority areas for conservation within the United States. This includes data from 67 Ecoregional Assessments, which identified over 9,000 conservation priority areas. Importantly, this dataset contains the conservation targets that we hope to conserve within these priority areas. Conservation targets include both species and habitat types (e.g. plant communities; ecosystems). Our dataset includes 8,507 unique species and 6,633 habitat...
