NRCS Regional Conservation Partnership Program - Longleaf Pine Range

    Longleaf pine forests once encompassed more than 90 million acres of the North American landscape and represented some of the world’s most unique biologically diverse ecosystems. In 2010, approximately three percent, or 3.4 million acres, of longleaf pine forest remained. This dataset includes a printer-friendly CCA map and shapefiles for GIS.

    Data from: Data from camera surveys identifying co-occurrence and occupancy linkages between fishers (Pekania pennanti), rodent prey, mesocarnivores, and larger predators in mixed-conifer forests

      These data provide information on the frequency of fisher detections by camera traps, and single-season occupancy and local persistence of fishers in small patches of Sierra Nevada mixed-conifer forest habitats. The data are used to identify basic patterns of co-occurrence with fishers, and to evaluate the relative importance of presence of competing mesocarnivores, rodent prey, and predators for fisher occupancy of small, 1 km^2^ grid cells of forest habitat.
