This data layer represents a potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's 'Hardwood Forested Uplands' Priority Resource (PR). The potential CT shown here is the protected/managed area. These layers were created for an initial investigation of potential CT's suggested at brainstorming workshops. The initial investigation entails locating available datasets to address the suggested CT as closely as possible and performing minimal analyses to determine their usefulness. The final set of CT's and their associated datasets will be chosen after targets (e.g., endpoints) are established as a threshold for achieving a conservation success for that CT. The data layer available for evaluating the area under management and/or...

This data layer represents a tested potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's Priority Resource (PR): Coastal Uplands. The suggested potential CT was Species Richness. Species Richness is one component of biodiversity, an important aspect of landscape conservation. Biodiversity is important for maintaining the balance of natural communities and ecosystems upon which humans also depend. Florida has a high level of species diversity and endemism but the state is experiencing threats to its natural heritage from a variety of sources. The data used in this analysis in addition to the Priority Resource layer is the Species Richness layer from the CLIP 4.0 geodatabase. The core layer of the geodatabase is from the...

This layer shows the results for initial analyses of the ' Connectivity' potential Conservation Target for the Freshwater Forested Wetlands Priority Resource (PR). Three datasets were used in this exploration of Connectivity: CLIP 4.0 Greenways, CLIP 4.0 Landscape Integrity, and the Local Connectedness layer, one of the core datasets in the Nature Conservancy's Resiliency Project. Each dataset provides a slightly different aspect of Connectivity. Each one of the potential data layers was masked using the PR raster to result in a spatial data layer of values within Freshwater Forested Wetlands. Further information on these analyses can be found in the Freshwater Forested Wetlands Initial Investigation of Conservation...

In 2006, the Century Commission for a Sustainable Florida called for an identification of those lands and waters in the state that are critical to the conservation of Florida’s natural resources. In response, the Florida Natural Areas Inventory, University of Florida Center for Landscape Conservation Planning, and Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission collaborated to produce CLIP - the Critical Lands and Waters Identification Project. CLIP is a GIS database of statewide conservation priorities for a broad range of natural resources, including biodiversity, landscape function, surface water, groundwater, and marine resources. CLIP is now being used to inform planning decisions by the Peninsular Florida...

This map was created from the Greenways Core Layer of CLIP 4.0. This layer was created as part of the Florida Ecological Greenways Network GIS Database. The Florida Ecological Greenways Network (FEGN) identifies the opportunities to protect large, intact landscapes important for conserving Florida’s biodiversity and ecosystem services, and serves as a backbone for biodiversity and ecosystem protection efforts in Florida. An important goal of the FEGN is to protect a functionally connected network of public and private conservation lands from the tip of south Florida to the tip of the Florida panhandle while also potentially providing functional connectivity to conservation lands in Georgia and Alabama.

This datalayer shows the protected areas of PFLCC's Connectivity Priority Resource (PR). The Florida Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI) -- Florida Managed Lands (flma) GIS data layer (March, 2017) was used to assess the level of protection. The Priority Levels of the Connectivity PR are shown. For metadata on PFLCC's Connectivity Priority Resource, please see the map of the same name. FNAI - FLMA -- FLORIDA CONSERVATION LANDS (layer name FLMA): This is a polygon data layer for public (and some private) lands that the Florida Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI) has identified as having natural resource value and that are being managed at least partially for conservation purposes. The term "Managed Area" refers to a managed...

These layers represent a potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's Priority Resource: Freshwater Aquatics. The potential CT is Plant Diversity and is represented in these layers as the Lake Vegetation Index from FDEP. The Lake Vegetation Index assesses the plant community and composition of lake plants and degrades the index when invasive aquatic species or non-native vegetation is present. Only sampling points found within the Priority Resource are included in this map. An LVI below 43 is considered an impaired lake. This map was prepared as part of an initial investigation to find data available and usefulness as a Conservation Target for evaluating the status of the Priority Resource.

This shows the addition of Major Rivers and Streams from the NHD to the land covers.
The Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative (PFLCC) is part of a national network of Landscape Conservation Cooperatives(LCCs). LCCs are applied conservation science partnerships among federal agencies, regional organizations, states, tribes, NGOs, private stakeholders, universities and other entities within a geographic area. They are designed to inform resource management decisions in an integrated fashion across landscapes at a broader scale than any individual partner’s responsibility. The partnership considers landscape-scale stressors, including climate change, habitat fragmentation, invasive species, and water scarcity as it attempts to provide a vision for a landscape capable of sustaining...

This data layer represents a potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's Priority Resource (PR): High Pine and Scrub. The potential CT shown here is the Red-cockaded Woodpecker (RCWs). RCWs were once common throughout the southeastern coastal plain, but are now a federally endangered species -- largely because of loss of its preferred habitat -- the longleaf pine ecosystem. The High Pine and Scrub PR is an important component of RCW recovery, and presence of this woodpecker may indicate a healthy high pine community. This layer was created for an initial investigation of potential CTs suggested by stakeholders during brainstorming workshops. The initial investigation entails locating available datasets to address...
