The data layer represents a potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's Connectivity Priority Resource(PR). The potential Conservation Target is the quality of the connections of the PR. The analysis on the Connectivity Priority Resource was performed using the Local Connectedness core layer of the Nature Conservancy's Resiliency Project. The Local Connectedness is an evaluation of the Land Use and Roads around each pixel to determine the resistance to movement of microhabitats across the landscape in the advent of local climate change. Reported metrics, however, reflect the opposite of resistance, instead the permeability of the landscape and are reported as Z-scores around the regional mean index value. ...
This dataset represents The Nature Conservancy's Terrestrial Resilience symbolized by Geophysical Settings (90m Resilience is also included in the download of this dataset). Resilience concerns the ability of a living system to adjust to climate change, to moderate potential damages, to take advantage of opportunities, or to cope with consequences; in short, its capacity to adapt. In this project we aim to identify the most resilient examples of key geophysical settings (e.g. sand plains, granite mountains, limestone valleys, etc.) to provide conservationists with a nuanced picture of the places where conservation is most likely to succeed over centuries. The project had three parts: 1) identifying and mapping...
