Extent of available data.
This data layer indicates where climate-resilient and connected landscapes are located across Minnesota. It was developed by The Nature Conservancy. Resilient areas have sufficient variability and microclimate options to enable species and ecosystems to persist in the face of climate change and which will maintain this ability over time. Connected areas have few barriers to the movement of species and limited fragmentation. A highly connected landscape promotes resilience by allowing species to move around the landscape and find suitable microclimates where they can persist. Resilient and connected areas are of high conservation value.
