    Description

    To identify the remaining areas of the Interior Cedar- Hemlock Forest of North America and prioritize them for conservation planning, the Craighead Environmental Research Institute has developed a 2-scale method for mapping critical habitat utilizing 1) a broad-scale model to identify important regional locations as the basis for a Conservation Area Design (CAD), and 2) fine-scale models for analyzing habitat quality and connectivity at site-specific locations targeted by the broad-scale analysis. The basic assumption is that if we can maintain healthy populations of focal species, we can protect biodiversity and healthy ecosystems. A habitat modeling approach was used that can be adapted to any landscape in the United States and Canada for almost any wildlife species.
