Summary

TO USE THIS DATA SET: Instructions are available at "https://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/FileHandler.ashx?DocumentID=149561" This data set was created to describe the spatial extent of targets for the 2015 California State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP) Update. The California State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP) is required under the State and Tribal Wildlife Grants Program (SWG) to allow states and territories to receive Federal grant funds. It is a comprehensive vision for wildlife conservation initially completed in 2005 and updated in 2015. The GIS data for SWAP are divided into two areas - terrestrial (vegetation macrogroup based) and aquatic(watershed based)data. This file contains the terrestrial targets.

Description

The California State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP) is required under the State and Tribal Wildlife Grants Program (SWG), which allows states and territories to receive Federal grant funds. It is a comprehensive vision for wildlife conservation initially completed in 2005 and updated in 2015. The GIS data for SWAP are divided into two types - terrestrial (vegetation macrogroup based) and aquatic(watershed based)data. This file contains the terrestrial targets. The SWAP defines "target" macrogroups throughout the state and describes their "Key Ecological Attributes", Environmental "Pressures"" (positive or negative) and "Strategies" for protection/enhancement of each target. Terrestrial targets are composed of specific macrogroups which are assigned target status based on what ecoregion and province they are within. A macrogroup may be a target within a certain ecoregion, but not a target within others.

The macrogroups used in this data set come from CaLFIRE-FRAP data. Initially, CALFIRE-FRAP compiled the "best available" land cover data into a single data layer (FVEG15_1), to support the various analyses required for the Forest and Rangeland Assessment, a legislatively mandated function. These data were updated to support on-going analyses and to prepare for the next FRAP assessment in 2015. The landcover data were crosswalked to macrogroups based on the Manual of California Vegetation (MCV) for use in the California Department of Fish and Wildlife's (CDFW) State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP) in 2015.

The "best available" landcover dataset for California (FVEG15_1) was crosswalked to macrogroups, a level in the hierarchical vegetation classification from the California Manual of Vegetation (MCV), the California arm of the National Vegetation Classification System (NVCS). These data were developed for use in CDFW's 2015 SWAP update and presented in Chapter 5 of the SWAP document using common names which are used throughout the SWAP document. A crosswalk between SWAP common names and USNVC macrogroups names is found in Table D-21 in the Appendix Volume (Volume II) of the SWAP document. See the first table of each subsection in Volume I Chapter 5 for the crosswalks used to convert the California Wildlife Habitat Relationships (CWHR) system habitat types from FVEG15_1 to MCV macrogroup types. In some instances, a single CWHR category could me one of up to three macrogroups. In these instances, all three macrogroups were mentioned in the attribute table. A user should assess whether their habitat matches one of these macrogroups by looking at the table (from Chapter 5) on the page mentioned in the attribute table.

The SWAP document locations of target conservation strategies and climate change adaptation strategies and target descriptions have been added to the attribute table for this dataset. The specific page locations (chapter and page)of the data sources are given in the attributes for the data. The page references are to Chapter 5 within the State Wildlife Action Plan 2015 Update, which is available at https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/SWAP/Final.
