Habitat Change Analysis Using Landsat TM (Legacy 02-161) (PDF)

Regional (multispectral) image data were used to map vegetation changes significant to North Carolina Sandhills Conservation Partnership (NCSCP)s wildlife management objectives. Hyperspectral image data were used in discriminating pine forest types and to enhance land cover information.

Actions to Abate Critical Threats, such as Encroachment and Invasive Species, Using GIS and Conservation Area Planning Across the Gulf Coastal Plain Ecosystem Partnership (GCPEP) Landscape Annual Report (Legacy 05-280) (PDF)

December 2006. This report details the goals and accomplishments during Phase I of this two-year project, which focuses on the initial development of this GIS database and incorporating this database into an updated GCPEP Conservation Area Plan in FL, which includes Eglin AFB. Appendices include invasive species information, a variety of resource maps and project site information.

Grand Bay-Banks Lake Stewardship Partnership - Phase II (Legacy 05-158) (PDF)

November 2006. The Grand Bay-Banks Lake ecosystem is a major part of an expansive palustrine wetland complex (over 18,000 acres) in south-central Georgia in Lanier and Lowndes Counties near Valdosta. The wetland is co-owned by Moody Air Force Base (AFB); Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Grand Bay Wildlife Management. This project involved the development of preliminary hydrological and fire management plans for the area as well as a monitoring plan to track the impacts of management action or inaction on the rare species and natural communities found at GBBL. Other components of this project include mapping of current and historic vegetation at the site, and a description of the presettlement fire regime and vegetation of the GBBL area.

State Wildlife Action Plans: Shaping National Fish and Wildlife Conservation - Final Report, April 2011 (Legacy 07-338) (PDF)

The objective of this project was to review State Wildlife Action Plans to identify key threats and conservation actions of national significance that are shared by the states and territories.

Ecoregional Conservation Data for the Columbia Plateau Ecoregion - Report, December 2006 (Legacy 04-215) (PDF)

In 2004, the Department of Defense (DOD) contracted with The Nature Conservancy to update information on the biological diversity within the Columbia Plateau ecoregion. Five datasets were requested: 1) an updated vegetation cover and sagebrush map; 2) an invasive annual grass GIS coverage map; 3) a high-resolution fire risk map; 4) threatened, endangered and at-risk species data; and, 5) freshwater aquatic systems and species data.
