Critical Linkages

Project description (English)

The University of Massachusetts Amherst is working in partnership with The Nature Conservancy and state agencies to complete a comprehensive analysis of areas in Massachusetts where connections must be protected and restored to support the Commonwealth's wildlife and biodiversity resources. The Critical Linkages project is developing spatially explicit tools, including models, maps and scenario-testing software, for use in mitigating the impacts of roads and railroads on the environment.
