This project will result in development of an information management and delivery system to coordinate science communication platforms and to build a catalog inside of the USGS ScienceBase data and information management platform.

Landscape Conservation Cooperatives use a collaborative approach to identify landscape scale conservation solutions. LCCs work across jurisdictional and political boundaries to work with partners to: meet unfilled conservation needs, develop decision support tools, share data and knowledge, and facilitate and foster partnerships.
As part of a shared science strategy, LCCs coordinate closely with the National Climate Change and Wildlife Center and the eight regional Climate Science Centers.
The Cascadia Parner Forum fosters a network of natural resource practitioners working with the NPLCC and GNLCC to guild the adaptive capacity of the landscape and species living within it.
A "gateway" using Data Basin technology will be developed to serve the data integration, collaboration and outreach needs of the NPLCC.
This project aims to support dry forest and savannah habitats in The Georgia Basin. Management objectives are to synthesize existing data into GIS tools that will prioritize land acquisition and conservation investment.
Scenarios, CLIP, and induation modeling will be incorporated into a decision support framework to help planners and managers view the information and be able to develop management options and adaptation plans in areas were need
The Conservation Planning Atlas (CPA) was created to help fulfill the mission of the NALCC and to create a common platform and communication method for the partnership.
The LCC will partner with ARLIS to produce an electronic database of the most relevant scientific and resource management literature, planning efforts, and conservation priorities within the NWB LCC region.
With funding provided by the LCC Network, the NWB LCC is joining with other Alaska-based LCCs to collaborate with the Conservation Biology Institute in the development of a Conservation Planning Atlas (CPA) for Alaska and Northwest Canada.
Funding supports a multi-year initiative entitled Crown of the Continent Landscapes Analysis/Ecological Indicators Project.
Proposed work will monitor for five years vegetation, fuels, wildlife, insects, and weather at 10 Sagebrush Steppe Treatment Evaluation Project (SageSTEP) sites, all of which have been treated to reduce either juniper encroachment (woodland sites) or cheatgrass invasion (sagebrush/cheatgrass site
Assemble three sets of downscaled climate data (historic) and projections (future) developed by the USGS and the Climate Impacts Group at University of Washington; evaluate data documentation and formatting, and edit or repair as needed; deliver all climate data in a userfriendly format from mirr
This project will identify essential habitats and habitat linkages required to connect these habitats under both existing conditions and future climate change scenarios. Specifically, this project will:
Existing stream temperature data were compiled from numerous federal, state, tribal, and private sources to develop an integrated regional database.
We propose a collaborative project with the USGS, Wyoming State Climate Office, USFWS, USFS, and the NPS whereby we will assemble and maintain long-term records of climate from key stations in and around the Great Northern LCC and subject these records to a rigorous series of QA/QC procedures.
LC MAP, the Landscape Conservation Management and Analysis Portal, allows GNLCC partners to discover, use, develop, manage, and distribute datasets that address LCC priority issues.
This project is part of an ongoing effort to develop and implement a landscape level decision support system (DSS) across the boundaries of Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and Montana.
'Coordination with Heart of the Rockies (HotR) staff to identify focal area, target data and scale of project and content and functionality needs of Conservation Registry (CR) portal
Grassland-shrubland prairie has been important to the livelihoods of generations of ranchers; to the hunting community because of prized game species; and to endangered species, such as the black-capped vireo, as habitat.
Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative partners are undertaking numerous efforts to conserve and restore coastal resources, many of which are sensitive to the effects of climate change.
Rocky Mountain Research Station scientists initiated a study in the 1990s on avian distribution and habitat associations within the Sky Islands.
This is a step in building effective partnerships was by identifying "who is doing what" and the interests and capacities of different organizations within the regional conservation community.
Developing the Caribbean blueprint for conservation
web based database: who is doing what in the agricultural sector
Further development of the capacity of the CLCC to address working lands conservation issuers
The California Climate Commons is an online library in which land managers and their technical support staff can quickly find the climate change and adaptation information they need and communicate with the researchers producing the data.
Phases 1-3 (2010-2012): This project will develop landscape change scenarios based upon water availability and precipitation and temperature patterns projected from downscaled models and investigate impacts of these changes on habitats and ecology of waterfowl, shorebirds, and other waterbirds in
This project will develop a foundation for monitoring environmental change by identifying where and what to monitor in order to evaluate climate-change impacts.
Phase 1 (2011): This project used species distribution modeling, population genetics, and geospatial analysis of historical vs. modern vertebrate populations to identify climate change refugia and population connectivity across the Sierra Nevada.
The ABSI region is one of the most remote and inaccessible areas within the national LCC network. As a result, access is both limited and expensive.
The purpose of this project is to: (1) develop GIS data layer(s) of cultural sites that can be used in vulnerability assessments; and (2) develop an annotated bibliography of literature about cultural resources that can help guide future management and research in the region.
Project will create a spatially-explicit database of terrestrial invasive and introduced species in the Aleutian and Bering Sea Islands region.
This research will develop and implement a user-friendly web-based tool to identify priority areas for riparian restoration in the context of predicted climate change at the appropriate scale needed by practitioners.
Partnership with GINA to complete uniform and consistent ecological mapping of the North Slope region and provide a summary of existing field site ecological descriptions (including photos) in a web base environment.
