Overview

This layer shows predicted mussel richness depicted for 39 species of mussels, based on individual conservative models for each species.

Data Layer Description

Source

The Nature Conservancy, New York Natural Heritage Program

Location

New York

Description

Predicted mussel richness depicted for 39 species of mussels, based on individual conservative models for each species, using model predictions for those passing validation (31 of 39) and observed locations only for those not passing validation. Once each species model is created, all models/observations are summed by stream segment to create this layer of predicted richness.
