GAP Analysis

Gap analysis mapped the land cover of the state, modeled the distributions of select terrestrial vertebrates, and identified land cover types, vertebrate species, and areas of high vertebrate species richness that are inadequately represented in protected areas. It assessed various groups of at-risk species for the degree to which they occur on protected lands. It is rich in its use of geographical information systems (GIS) technology, and it is spatially explicit, but at a relatively coarse scale.
