Systematic Conservation Planning in Alberta and the Alberta Species Conservation Atlas

Scott Nielson

This presentation looks at Alberta's Land Use Framework (LUF) and discuss approaches being used to model and predict the distribution of suitable habitat for 300 of the rarest plant and invertebrate species in the province. It also looks, among other things, at how Alberta is using this information to map hotspots in rare species diversity.
