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).

We used the NatureServe Vista ArcGIS extension to map diversity as recommended in the Yale Framework. This map might be viewed as a specialized depiction of climate envelope models; this is a richness index reflecting the concentration of central basin refugia under a future climate (circa 2050). Refugia are roughly defined as areas where an element's distribution remains consistent under a future bioclimate scenario. This CVS index integrates three spatial components (per pixel): the number of refugia elements present, bioclimate model uncertainty (number of climatic models in agreement with the future element distribution), and the landscape condition as represented with a Landscape Condition Model. This information...
