Vermont Habitat Blocks and Habitat Connectivity

Project description (English)

This project was conducted in order to better understand the statewide distribution of contiguous habitat blocks. In addition, the goal has been to prioritize the significance of habitat blocks for their biological and conservation values and to assess potential threat to them from future habitat fragmentation. Finally, this project identifies likely road crossings and provides a basis for evaluating wildlife corridors (wildlife linkage habitat) and landscape connectivity
