Description: This layer aggregates high value forest, high value grassland and high value wetland habitat per 5 ha hexagon in the Boreal Hardwood Transition Ecozone, also known as BCR 12. It is the final derived dataset from the CWS-ON Landscape Conservation Atlas and Plan (COLCAP). COLCAP is a comprehensive landscape assessment in BCR 12 and 13 that describes and assesses the CWS landscape biodiversity portfolio.Using How Much Habitat is Enough? guidelines, forest, grassland and wetland habitat were assessed and scored and the top 25% of each were categorized as having potential high conservation value (PHCV). Species at risk (SAR) criteria (SAR richness, irreplaceability, global rarity, probability of critical habitat, diversity and candidate SAR) were assessed and scored and the top 25% of these scores within each habitat type were categorized as having PHCV. Migratory bird criteria relevant to each habitat (landbird stopover habitat, waterfowl stopover habitat, forest/grassland bird density and waterfowl density) were added together and the top 25% of each score were categorized as having PHCV.Study units (5 ha hexagons) containingat least 2 of these PHCVs were aggregated together at 750 m to derive High Value Biodiversity Areas.Areas greater than 20 ha are classified as 'Biodiversity Sites' and areas less than 20 ha are 'Secondary Sites.' These sites were created with the same criteria, the only differentiating attribute is size.
