GCP LCC staff present a detailed overview of the process used and results achieved to date in completing the coarse filter landscape conservation design (LCD) for the GCP.
Landscape Conservation Design (LCD) is a bridge between biological planning and conservation delivery because it helps people and organizations agree on priorities and focus on achieving results in a way that maximizes return on investment. The approach of the Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative to its LCD is two-pronged -- coarse filter and fine filter.
The coarse filter approach focuses on the broadly defined habitats described in the LCC’s Science Strategy. For the majority of those habitats, the LCC has brought together data covering the entire Gulf Coast Prairie geography, which can be depicted spatially.
The Gulf Coast Prairie’s coarse filter LCD process integrates the following data for each of 11 focal habitat types:
This is an opportunity for GCP Steering Committee and Science Team members to see the progress achieved to date and view where our broadly-defined habitats are projected to be given scenarios of sea level rise and growth of developed land. Time will be given to discuss approaches for combining these data products for submission to the Southeast Conservation Adaptation Strategy Blueprint, which will be released this fall.
