The UWRM proposal represents the uplands wildlands network in the Heart of the West Proposal. Utah-Wyoming Rocky Mountains Ecoregion (UWRM) core areas and linkages shapefile. This GIS dataset provides core areas and linkages that includes all the components of a three track approach (special elements, representation, and focal species) used during the planning process. This is the result of a study contract by The Nature Conservancy to design an ecoregional plan for Northern Utah, Western Wyoming, Southeastern Idaho, Northwest Colorado and South-central Montana. The study was developed in 2001 by Reed Noss, George Wuerthner, Ken Vance-Borland, and Carlos Carroll from Conservation Science, Inc.

This data set includes Biodiversity 2 PCAs, Level 2 and 3 buffer areas, and the study region. Buffer polygons are areas where multiple one-mile buffers for a given PCA overlap. Level 2 provides a buffer for two PCAs and Level 3 provides a buffer for three PCAs. Buffer poylgons are categorized based on the extent conservation easements fall within them. These buffers are important conservation areas because they create wildlife corridors between multiple PCA habitats. Potential Conservation Areas (PCAs) are “land areas that can provide the habitat and ecological processes upon which a particular element (i.e. rare plant and animal species and significant plant communities) occurrence, or suite of element occurrences,...
