Multiple-benefit Conservation in Practice: Supplemental Spatial Data for Quantifying Multidimensional Impacts of Landscape Change in California's Sacramento–San Joaquin Delta

  • 1. Point Blue Conservation Science

Description

SUMMARY
Spatial data representing climate, proximity to streams, and probability of flooding in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.

DESCRIPTION
These data were compiled as predictors of the distribution of riparian landbird species and groups of waterbird species, to facilitate projecting the probability of species or group presence across a given landscape. They were used to identify Priority Bird Conservation Areas and in analyses of the impacts of scenarios representing habitat restoration and perennial crop expansion on suitable habitat. These data are required for using the R package "DeltaMultipleBenefits", which provides the code and work flow for repeating the initial analyses or analyzing new scenarios.

FUNDING STATEMENT
These data were developed as part of the project "Trade-offs and Co-benefits of Landscape Change on Bird Communities and Ecosystem Services in the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta", funded by Proposition 1 Delta Water Quality and Ecosystem Restoration Program, Grant Agreement Number – Q1996022, administered by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

DATE
These data were compiled in 2022, based on data from WorldClim (representing 1970-2000), National Hydrography Dataset (published 2020), and Point Blue's Water Tracker (representing 2013-2019).

FIELD DEFINITIONS

  • bio_1: annual mean temperature (C), 1970-2000 (WorldClim; Fick and Hijmans 2017)
  • bio_12: total annual precipitation (mm), 1970-2000 (WorldClim; Fick and Hijmans 2017)
  • streamdist: square root of the distance to the nearest stream (m) (National Hydrography Dataset; USGS 2020)
  • pwater_fall: mean probability of open surface water during the fall, 2013-2019 (Point Blue Water Tracker; Reiter et al. 2018)
  • pwater_win: mean probability of open surface water during the winter, 2013-2019 (Point Blue Water Tracker; Reiter et al. 2018)
