Vegetation, California, environment, biota, Marin County
Prior to developing a Vegetation and Biodiversity Management Plan, MCOSD determined that a vegetation classification and map of their lands was necessary to characterize existing floristic resources. Results the classification and this vegetation map (AIS 2008) will help inform a variety of resource management tasks including sensitive species and habitat protection, trail and road maintenance, wildfire risk reduction, Sudden Oak Death mitigation, and compliance with federal, state and local environmental regulations.
This is a vegetation map of the Marin County Open Space District Lands. It was produced in 2008 by Aerial Information Systems using hi-resolution (1') natural color imagery provided by the County of Marin, acquired by Vargis (date unknown). The classification is based on the National Vegetation Classification System, and specifically supported by fieldwork done by CNPS in both the MCOSD and the Marin Municipal Water District through 2008.
