Title: Terrestrial Conservation Focus Areas > 10 Hectares (ECO_RES.ECOFOC_GEO10)
Abstract: The ECOFOC_GEO10 layer represents Terrestrial Conservatioin Focus Areas that are greater than or equal to 10 hectares in size. Conservation Focus Areas are threatened areas of ecological importance. They range from 0 (no risk, no importance) to 3 (high risk, high importance). They were derived from a series of data sets, including agriculture, development and toxic threats, a measure of ecological significance and an analysis of irreplaceability for a set of conservation targets. Full details of the procedure can be found in Diamond, Sowa and Foster, 2005, "Development of Conservation Focus Area Models for EPA Region 7".
