A battery of questions was developed and applied to different stakeholders immersed in knowledge of the condition and the use of grazing of grasslands. One hundred people were surveyed amongst livestock producers (both from private ranches and from communal ejidos), and students and researchers at regional institutions involved in agricultural sciences in different states of Mexico: Coahuila, Durango, San Luis Potosí, and Jalisco. The objective of the survey was to determine aspects of stakeholders’ interpretation of the condition of grasslands in their region under conditions of extensive grazing, such as soil condition, harvest efficiency, vegetation condition, openness to community organizing of grazing, capacity...

High resolution vegetation polygons mapped by the National Park Service. This vegetation classification and mapping effort encompasses 413,031 acres (167,148 ha) within the Alamosa Basin, east of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in south central Colorado. The mapping boundary is made up of several management units from a variety of government and private agencies. These include the National Park Service (Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve - (149,137 acres), U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (Baca National Wildlife Refuge - 92,623 acres), U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management (Blanca Wetlands), and the Nature Conservancy (Medano-Zapata Ranch - 32,725 acres). The mapped area includes portions of Saguache...

Final Report - Executive Summary: This final project report is prepared to summarize the research project titled “Assessing evapotranspiration rate changes for proposed restoration of the forested uplands of the Desert Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCC)” for the Desert LCC of the Bureau of Reclamation as a requirement for closing out the project. This report includes the scope of work, summary of research project, results, and conclusions. Among all of the components of the terrestrial water cycle, evapotranspiration (ET) consumes the largest amount of water. Accurate estimation of ET is very important to understand the influence of ET to the hydrologic response of recharge and runoff processes in the water...

The dynamic vegetation model MC2 used a suite of climate futures from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5, http://cmip-pcmdi.llnl.gov/cmip5/ downscaled using a fairly new statistical downscaling approach (Abatzoglou 2011), Multivariate Adaptive Constructed Analogs (MACA), over the western US. The vegetation model was run on the NASA Earth Exchange (NEX) platform at 4km resolution for 2 representative concentration pathways (RCPs) 8.5 and 4.5 (Moss et al. 2010, van Vuuren et. al 2011). Representative Concentration Pathway define a specific emissions trajectory and subsequent radiative forcing. Radiative forcing is a measure of the influence a factor has in altering the balance of incoming and outgoing...

A species has been applied to each hectare based on the 6 species fields in the raw data and the percentage of each species within a given polygon. For example a hectare which is 75% Pine and 25% Cedar has a 25% chance of being flagged as ''Cedar'' and 75% chance of being flagged as ''Pine''. A code describing the commercial species or brush species in the layer. Species must be above a specified diameter to be recognized in the species composition of the layer. Leading species are described in terms of Genus, Species and Subspecies. There are currently 27 commercial tree species and five genus values recognized in the Province. The code may also used to describe brush species in cases where the Non-Productive Descriptor...

The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has derived climate suitability forecasts for most species of trees and shrubs considered to be ecological dominants of terrestrial Californian habitat types. Our plant projections are compiled as decision support tools to help Conservancy project staff, as well as our external partners, develop the necessary plans, priorities and strategies to successfully adapt to uncertain changes in future climate. In the recently completed Southern Sierra Partnership's 2010 Climate-Adapted Conservation Plan for the Southern Sierra Nevada and Tehachapi Mountains, species and habitat forecasts shown here informed the development of a regional conservation design that explicitly incorporates long-term...
