The Washington-British Columbia Transboundary Climate-Connectivity Project engaged science-practice partnerships to identify potential climate impacts on wildlife habitat connectivity in the transboundary region of Washington and British Columbia, and adaptation actions for addressing these impacts. This gallery includes data gathered or created as part of this project, as well as accompanying reports describing key findings for 13 case studies (including 11 species, a vegetation system, and a region).

Description: With their project, Building Cross Cultural Capacity in the Crown of the Continent, Kimberly Paul and Laura Caplins are working to increase the “cross cultural capacity” of indigenous and non-indigenous groups to collaborate on climate adaptation in the Crown of the Continent. In order to achieve this purpose, the objectives of this project are to identify

We will develop an approach to identify fire refugia in Rocky Mountain ecosystems of the U.S. and Canada then test the function of refugia for biodiversity conservation under current and future climate/fire scenarios. Our products will be designed to inform decision-making in land/easement acquisition, identification of critical areas for maintaining landscape and process connectivity/permeability, and extension of the temporal context for spatial conservation decision making. The approach will be testable for transferability to other locations and ecosystems.

This database includes fire perimeter polygons for fires which reached a size >= 385 ha, and burned between the years of 1984-2011. Each fire has a unique numeric identifier of "PolyID". Additional attributes are as follows:

FIRE_ID: For those fires with an ID, the ID assigned by the reporting agency of the MTBS project.

FIRENAME: Names of those fires which are named. This is uncommon in Canada.

YEAR: The year the fire burned.

MONTH: The month the fire burned. If no month data is available the field includes a 0.

Shapefile of a set of fires sampled from the GNLCC Large Fire Database, 1984-2011. This sampled was collected from across the total variability in climate within the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GNLCC) study area. Additional detail about the topography, climate, and burn severity was collected for this identified sample, and used to model fire refugia and low-severity burn probability within the fire perimeters.



Each fire has a unique numeric identifier of "PolyID". Additional attributes are as follows:

The transboundary region of Washington and British Columbia (Fig. 1) is important for the conservation of many wildlife species. Some species of conservation concern, such as wolverine (Gulo gulo) and Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis), have home ranges that span the international border. Other species depend on the region for seasonal habitat. All regional wildlife species will require a connected network of habitats spanning the border as they adjust their ranges to meet life history requirements under future changes to climate and land-use.

Presenter: Sandra L. Haire, Ph.D. As a landscape ecologist, Sandra is primarily interested in understanding how disturbance creates spatial patterns and affects ecological processes. Her research topics include the influence of management, climate, and topography on fire regimes, and identification of characteristic spatial and temporal scales of post-fire succession and forest regeneration.

This dataset was developed as part of a long-term project monitoring the ecological health of the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem (CCE). This effort is a collaborative project between National Park Service Rocky Mountain Inventory and Monitoring Network (ROMN) (Landscape Dynamics Vital Sign), Crown Managers Partnership, Ecological Health Subcommittee (CMP EH) (Landscapes Indicator), and University of Calgary, Geography Department. Purpose and goals of the Crown Manager's Partnership and the Rocky Mountain Network Vital Signs monitoring programs are available at the respective websites.

Consistent transboundary geospatial datasets are a key piece of data in landscape health analysis. The CMP has collected, compiled, and synthesize data from a number of sources in the CCE.  The initial data mining effort was for the year c2000, and there is an ongoing effort to update the geospatial datasets available for the CCE to understand both spatial and temporal landuse and landcover trends.

To see information on the data mining effort for c2000 please see the Data Mining Report found in this folder

Lakes bathymetry is a line feature-based layer that includes bathymetric information for selected reservoirs, lakes, and ponds in Montana. The layer is based on information collected by multiple sources including contractors with Montana Department of Environmental Quality, the Bureau of Reclamation, and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks. Data collection methods vary over time with techniques using a variety of different equipment including manual and electronic depth soundings, use of a GPS receiver, and digitizing previously published bathymetry maps.
