Ecological Network - Resource Lands Assessment
Author: John Wolf
Date created: Jan 23, 2008
The Ecological Network Assessment aims to identify the most important remaining habitats in the Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Delaware, and D.C. portions of the Bay Watershed. The assessment applies a "hubs and corridors" approach, which is based on principles of landscape ecology and conservation biology, that suggest that size and connectivity are critical factors of high integrity habitat.
