Protection Status of Terrestrial Vertebrate Species by Ecoregion


This provisional Biogeographic Analysis Package provides an analysis of protection status for select terrestrial vertebrate species within Omernik Level III Ecoregions. This package demonstrates how this species data can be combined with ecoregional boundaries and protected areas data to evaluate the protection of a species at the ecoregional scale. The package can be used to identify ecoregions where a species has the greatest representation in GAP Status 1 and 2 lands (lands managed for the protection of biodiversity) and the ecoregions where a species is the least protected. One important use of the data in this Biogeographic Analysis Package is to evaluate what proportion of the habitat of various species is managed for long-term [...]
