When a species is proposed for listing as endangered or threatened under the Endangered Species Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service must consider whether there are areas of habitat believed to be essential the species’ conservation. Those areas may be proposed for designation as “critical habitat.” Critical habitat is a term defined and used in the Act. It is a specific geographic area(s) that contains features essential for the conservation of a threatened or endangered species and that may require special management and protection. Critical habitat may include an area that is not currently occupied by the species but that will be needed for its recovery. An area is designated as “critical habitat” after the...

This dataset includes quantification tools being used or developed for habitat and biodiversity markets in the United States. These tools are designed to estimate the ecological quality or functionality of a site for conservation mechanisms such as payment for ecosystem services programs, eco-label certification programs, habitat exchanges, and conservation banking. The dataset consists of 69 tools which are described using 33 criteria that provide information on the general, technical, and ecological/geographic attributes of each tool.

This dataset represents areas in western Oregon with high conservation value. Identification of areas with high conservation value can help land managers strategize during planning efforts to better meet goals, such as viability of northern spotted owls. A large proportion of the areas identified as high conservation value fall on public lands, some areas of which are currently undergoing management plan revisions. Combination of this dataset with datasets depicting land ownership and protection status, such as the Protected Areas Database, can reveal areas of high conservation value which are not currently protected. High conservation value was evaluated using the Ecosystem Management Decision Support (EMDS) tool,...
