BLM REA SOD 2010 Desert Tortoise (Gopherus agassizii): Current Status and Long-Term Potential For Development


This dataset presents the current potential distribution of Desert Tortoise (Gopherus agassizii) within the context of current terrestrial intactness and long-term potential for energy development (1KM reporting units). Current terrestrial intactness is based on current measures of landscape development, fire regime and vegetation impacts, and fragmentation. Long-term potential for energy development is based on areas of potential for wind, solar, and petroleum development derived from multiple sources. These models present one possible set of estimates of the status and potential for change for this conservation element. Many additional factors may affect this conservation element beyond those captured in these models; these attributes [...]
