Species Guilds and Landscape Integrity Results

The statewide analysis applied both landscape integrity and focal species modelling approaches.  16 focal species were analyzed, and were able to be grouped into three different connectivity guilds: (1) generalist (including species such as mule
deer and western toads; (2) montane (including species such as American black bears and wolverines; and (3) shrubsteppe (including species such as American badgers and white-tailed jackrabbits.  Maps below show the combined statewide display of connectivity networks for an individual guild and landscape integrity results combined:

Focal Species Results

Each focal species analysis produced several map products that are informative in understanding the network of habitats and connections between them for an individual species.  These products include maps for resistance layers, habitat concentration areas, cost-weighted distance, and linkage zones (see example from the elk analysis to the right).  Each product provides an informative through this species needs on the landscape, and together these products provide a view of a connected network of habitats for an individual species in our analysis area.  Below a link is provided to a map for each of these products for the 16 focal species analyzed in the statewide analysis.  An asterik indicates if this species was analyzed at a finer scale by our working group through our Columbia Plateau analyses.
