Summary

Summary of biodiversity and rarity information that can be used to identify areas of potential biological or conservation interest. Statewide rankings show relative biodiversity, rarity, endemism, and sensitive habitat richness on a statewide basis. Relative rankings on an ecoregional basis (by USDA ecoregion section) are available as a separate data layer.

Description

California Department of Fish and Wildlife(CDFW) statewide analyses of biological richness by 2.5 square mile hexagons, for ACE-II project, September 18, 2015 update.

Four indices of biological richness were developed: total native species richness based on species range maps, rare species richness and rarity-weighted richness based on rare species occurrence data, and sensitive habitat presence. The four indices were combined in a weighted-additive model framework, giving each layer equal weight, to produce the biological index surface.Biological richness indices represent relative values scaled from 0-1 (i.e., percentages) across the state. Hexagons with a high biological index score represent those areas with high species richness, high levels of rarity and irreplaceability, and/or sensitive habitats.

See the ACE-II Project Report for a detailed description of data inputs and analyses at https://nrmsecure.dfg.ca.gov/FileHandler.ashx?DocumentID=24326 . An abbreviated summary is provided in the Supplemental Information below.

The ACE-II data was developed by the California Dept. of Fish & Wildlife, ACEII Technical Team. Data development: Melanie Gogol-Prokurat, Monica Parisi, Adrienne Truex, Eric Haney, Dan Applebee, Ray McDowell, L. Guphy Gustafson, Kristi Fien, Rod Gonzalez, Kevin Shaffer, Julie Horenstein,, and Dave Dixon Model development and scripting: Ryan Hill, Sandra Hill and Melanie Gogol-Prokurat Multiple datasets were compiled and analyzed in the development of ACE-II, including species ranges, species occurrence data, and landcover data. A full list of the datasets included in the ACE-II analysis is included in the project report.

Use limitations

The ACE II data is subject to certain assumptions and limitations that must be considered in any use or application of the data. See the ACE II project report ( https://nrmsecure.dfg.ca.gov/FileHandler.ashx?DocumentID=24326 ) for a full list of appropriate uses and limitations. All biological richness indices are limited by the accuracy and scale of the input data, and do not represent all areas of high biological value throughout the state. The biological index calculation is a broad-scale analysis and does not incorporate all biological considerations that should be addressed during comprehensive conservation planning. The biological index surface is not a map of CDFW's conservation priorities and should not be interpreted as such. ACE-II is not an analysis of critical conservation areas for individual species or habitats, and does not replace the need for site-specific surveys and analysis.

The user accepts sole responsibility for the correct interpretation and use of these data, and agrees not to misrepresent these data. CDFW makes no warranty of any kind regarding these data, express or implied. By downloading these datasets, the user understands that these data are in draft condition. The user will not seek to hold the State or the Department liable under any circumstances for any damages with respect to any claim by the user or any third party on account of or arising from the use of data or maps. CDFW reserves the right to modify or replace these datasets without notification.

The ACE-II maps display biological and recreational values based on available data and constrained by the limitations of the data. These values do not represent critical conservation areas for individual species or habitats. The values may be influenced by level of survey effort and do not consider current level of threat or levels of protection for species or habitats. Some areas showing low biological values may have high conservation value. The ACE-II data represent broad-scale patterns of biological richness, and the value of any single hexagon should be interpreted with caution. ACE-II is a decision-support tool to be used in conjunction with species-specific information and local-scale conservation prioritization analyses. The user accepts sole responsibility for the correct interpretation and use of the ACE-II datasets and report. The ACE-II maps do not replace the need for site-specific evaluation of biological resources and should not be used as the sole measure of conservation priority during planning. No statement or data set shall by itself be considered an official response from a state agency regarding impacts to wildlife resulting from a management action subject to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

ACE-II is a compilation of the best available scientific information. However, many of these datasets are not comprehensive across the landscape, may change over time, and should be revised and improved as new data become available.

Supplemental information
See the ACE-II Project Report for a detailed description of data inputs and analyses at https://nrmsecure.dfg.ca.gov/FileHandler.ashx?DocumentID=24326. An abbreviated summary is provided below. To depict biological richness, four indices relevant to conservation value were produced: native species richness, rare species richness, "irreplaceability" (i.e., rarity-weighted richness), and the presence of sensitive habitats. Native richness and rarity layers were developed for each of six taxonomic groups: birds, fish, amphibians, plants, mammals, and reptiles. The data were then combined across taxonomic groups to produce total native species richness, total rare species richness, and total rarity-weighted richness indices. The data were normalized to give each taxonomic group equal weight, to remove any bias caused by the variation in the total number of taxa per taxonomic group. For ecoregional analyses, data were normalized by ecoregion, and for statewide analyses data were normalized statewide. Information on the location of four sensitive habitat types, wetlands, riparian, rare upland natural communities, and high value salmonid habitat, was also assembled. Final data sets were ranked ecoregionally and statewide by quintile. Raw ecoregional index values are provided, as well as ecoregional and statewide ranks for each index. The ecoregionally normalized values are not directly comparable between ecoregions. The four indices of richness and rarity were combined in a weighted additive model, giving each index equal weight, to produce the ACE II biological index surface. Hexagons with a high biological index score represent those areas with high species richness, high levels of rarity and irreplaceability, and/or sensitive habitats. Areas with a high biological index score would be expected to have high conservation value and meet multiple conservation goals. However, data included in ACE II are subject to certain assumptions and limitations that must be considered in any use or application of the data. The biological index surface is limited by the accuracy and scale of the input data, and does not represent all areas of high biological value throughout the state. Some areas with a high biological index score may have low biological or conservation value due to habitat conversion (e.g., urbanization) or other factors. The ACE-II biological index is a broad-scale analysis and does not incorporate all biological considerations that should be addressed during comprehensive conservation planning. It should not be interpreted as a map of CDFW's conservation priorities. Current level of protection, level of habitat conversion (i.e., urbanization), intactness and connectivity, and threats to natural habitats, all important considerations when determining conservation value, were not considered when developing the biological index. The biological index surface is not a delineation of the reserve configuration needed to ensure adequate protection of individual species or habitats. The biological index does not replace site-specific evaluation of biological resources and should not be used as the sole measure of conservation priority during planning.
