Descriptive nameArizona Missing Linkages (AGFD/NAU 2007-2008)
File namelink_az
Spatial domainArizona
AbstractFunded by Arizona Game & Fish Department, conservation biologists and GIS analysts at Northern Arizona University created detailed linkage designs for 16 priority areas in Arizona that were highlighted in the 2006 Wildlife Linkages Assesment. These plans identify and map multi-species corridors that will best maintain wildlife movement between wildland blocks, as well as highlight specific planning and road mitigation measures required to maintain connectivity in these corridors.

These linkage designs were developed to serve as a guide for optimal locations of wildlife corridors/linkages in each study area. They are intended to provide a scientifically-based starting point for conservation actions and could inform activities such as watershed planning, habitat restoration, conservation easement or land acquisition, zoning, project evaluation, etc. Detailed information on methodology to create these modeled designs is available at www.corridordesign.org.
