This set of maps shows relative habitat quality for snakes that prefer the rocky outside margin of the bottomland area. Component layers (type and count of cover types, distance to bottomland boundary and distance to permanent water) are included, as are associated layers of channel boundaries, reaches, and bottomland kilometers.
This set of maps shows relative habitat diversity (complexity) as it relates to the number of different dominant cover types are found in 1 hectare, and the number of structural types found in 1 hectare. Component layers are included, as are layers of channel boundaries, reaches, and bottomland kilometers.
This set of maps shows relative habitat quality for riparian understory species, both with and without a penalty applied for abundant tamarisk. Component layers are included, as are complementary layers of channel boundaries, reaches, and bottomland kilometers.
These layers show some of the human interactions with the bottomland area. Recreation sites, roads, fuel treatment areas, and river camp layers were all acquired from project partners or publically available data and clipped to or near the bottomland boundary for use here. Bottomland reaches, kilometers, 2010 channel layers were created for the Colorado River Conservation Planning project.
This collection of maps shows vegetation cover types that are either Dominant or Common (see project documentation for full methodology in mapping). Sparse cover types are not shown here. All patches have a dominant cover type, but not all have a Common type. Vegetation features were mapped by National Park Service staff; ground-truthing and editing of vegetation data was done by project staff, as was mapping of bare areas and channel features. Associated layers of river channels, reaches, and bottomland kilometers are included for reference.
A model of natural recovery potential is presented along with component layers (overbank flow, abundance of native and non-native cover types) and assigned values, plus associated layers of bottomland boundaries, and the river channel at low flow (2010).
