California leaf-nosed bat - Species Distribution Model, DRECP

May 20, 2013 (Last modified Dec 3, 2013)
DRECP Reviewed by Conservation Biology Institute
This dataset shows the modeled distribution for California leaf-nosed bat, Macrotus californicus, within the boundaries of the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan (DRECP). It is based on habitat identified for the DRECP from the DRECP Landcover dataset, which is based primarily on GAP vegetation data and community surveys by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW). Other data used were mine data from the Department of Conservation, springs and seeps from the Geographic Names Information System, and California Ecological Sections from the USDA Forest Service.

The California leaf-nosed bat model output was rasterized by CBI at 270m resolution and generalized using majority filter and boundary clean techniques; areas smaller than 10 pixels were removed from the final product.
