This dataset is the EEMS output for GFDL Climate Refugia (1km) for 2040-2069 within the DRECP 12km buffered boundary. Climate Refugia is the term used in the DRECP proejct to describe areas within the DRECP boundary that have low climate change. Low Climate Change was calculated by areas with areas with low percipiitation change (only considering a decrease in precipitation as change) and low change temperature change (only considering a increase in precipitation as change).

Landscape conservation cooperatives (LCCs) are conservation-science partnerships between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and other federal agencies, states, tribes, NGOs, universities and stakeholders within a geographically defined area. They inform resource management decisions to address national-scale stressors-including habitat fragmentation, genetic isolation, spread of invasive species, and water scarcity-all of which are accelerated by climate change.

This is a web map service from the USFWS. It contains multiple layers related to final critical habitat for threatened and endangered species. Critical habitat are areas considered essential for the conservation of a listed species. These datasets include both line and polygon features.More information can be found here: http://criticalhabitat.fws.gov/crithab/

This dataset displays the locations of Engelmann oak trees (Quercus engelmannii) in the Horsemill Road oak grove on the Crestridge Ecological Reserve, along with the size class of each occurrence. From 2009 data collected by CBI.

This dataset represents a subset of the original USDA Forest Service map spanning 1878-2007. This map depicts only fires from 1878-1899. The original metadata for the entire dataset is below:This dataset represents USDA Forest Service fire perimeters 10+ acres and California Dept of Forestry fire perimeters 300+ acres occurring from the year 1950 to 2007. The geographic extent of the fires includes the State of California, Region 5 Forests (some R5 Forests have boundaries falling outside CA) and the Toiyabe National Forest in Region 4. Some fires before 1950 are also included. Fires are compiled from both historic and recently mapped records. This layer contains records up to and including fires from 2007.

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
