The purpose of the classification and vegetation map is to aid management of the Pine Creek and Fitzhugh Creek Wildlife Area. A separate attribute noting invasion by Juniperus occidentalis was added at the request of regional staff.
This fine-scale vegetation classification and map of the Pine Creek and Fitzhugh Creek Wildlife Areas, Modoc County, California was created following FGDC and National Vegetation Classification Standards by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife Vegetation Classification and Mapping Program VegCAMP. The map classification is based on a floristic classification that was derived from data collected in the field following the California Native Plant Society's Rapid Assessment protocol (www.cnps.org) in June, 2006 and analyzed by VegCAMP using cluster analysis to derive the classes. The map was digitized using true-color 2005 1-meter National Agricultural Imagery Program (NAIP) imagery as the base. Almost all polygons were field checked and corrected in June 2007.
