Habitat Connectivity Mapping in the Portland Metro Region


ABSTRACT: The end product are maps and databases depicting habitat connectivity for particular species that are surrogates for a broader range of species. The surrogate Species connectivity modeling includes two components. First, each Surrogate Species’ breeding/home range habitats are modeled using empirically-derived variables such as land cover information and habitat patch size. Portland State University will deliver the results of this modeling effort to Metro in July 2018. Second, the best apparent connectivity habitat is modeled based on variables such as surrogate species’ permeable habitats that may not be sufficient for breeding but passable for travel; distance between stepping stone habitats; and likely barriers such [...]
