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...

All Conservation Design Elements identified through a multi-year conservation planning effort undertaken by the Appalachian Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC). These elements were identified by the program Marxan as meeting collective conservation targets. Datasets include a merged design of all five elements, individual element shapefiles, and a prioritization shapefile (Conservation Design elements outlined by the NatureScape Design that were then placed into a prioritization framework based on Margulis and Pressy 2000).

These data represent a potential Conservation Target for the Working Lands Priority Resource of the PFLCC. The potential Conservation Target is the connectivity of Working Lands. The Florida Greenways layer from CLIP 4.0 provides a context for Connectivity with natural habitats that provide connections between large natural areas in Florida. For additional metadata on CLIP 4.0, see the gallery of the same name in the Peninsular Florida LCC Community. The data set shown depicts the Greenways priorities within the Working Lands Priority Resource only. The Working Lands Priority Resource raster layer was used as a mask to extract the Greenways priority values for pattern analysis.

This data layer represents the priority rare species and habitats that lie with PFLCC's Connectivity Priority Resource. The analysis was performed with the Florida Natural Areas Inventory's (FNAI) Florida Habitat model that was designed to identify areas important for species habitat based on both species rarity and richness -- FNAI mapped occurrence-based potential habitat for 281 species of plants, invertebrates, and vertebrates, including aquatic species. The metadata for PFLCC's Connectivity Priority Resource can be found in the map of the same name. The FNAIHAB model was designed to identify areas important for species habitat based on both species rarity and species richness. FNAI mapped occurrence-based...

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...

These data represent a potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's Priority Resource (PR): Connectivity. Wide-ranging species are an important component for Connectivity in Florida. The data layer represents the predicted distributions of three wide-ranging species in Florida -- the Florida Black Bear, Florida Panther, and the Eastern Indigo Snake. PFLCC's Connectivity Priority Resource is based on the Florida Ecological Greenways Netword's Greenways layer -- Bear and Panther Connectivity are part of the consideration for the original layer. For metadata on PFLCC's Connectivity Priority Resource, please see the data layer of the same name in PFLCC's Connectivity Gallery. The predicted distribution for the Florida...

This layer shows the most recent sea turtle nesting data for Loggerhead Sea Turtles in Florida. These data were evaluated as a potential Conservation Target, orbiological indicator, for the Coastal Uplands Priority Resource. Sea turtle nesting data does not provide a good biological indicator because they show a high degree of philopatry to nesting beaches. Input: The State of Florida, through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, coordinates the Statewide Nesting Beach Survey program (SNBS). The SNBS was initiated in 1979 under a cooperative agreement between FWC and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Its purpose is to document the total distribution, seasonality,...

This layer shows the overlap of PFLCC's Connectivity Priority Resource with Florida's Priority Ecological Areas (PEAs). PEAs are areas of statewide ecological significance that are based on established GIS data for identifying areas important for conserving biodiversity and ecosystem services. PEAs are the base building block of the Florida Ecological Greenways Network that are used to help identify large, intact, and potentially functionally connected natural and semi-natural landscapes with higher ecological significance across the state.
