Description: This layer aggregates high value forest, high value grassland and high value wetland habitat per 2 ha hexagon in the Ontario portion of the Mixedwood Plains Ecozone, also known as BCR 13. 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 was assessed andscored, and the top 25% of each habitat score were categorized as having potential high conservation value (PHCV). Species at risk (SAR) criteria (diversity, SAR richness, irreplaceability, global rarity, candidate SAR and probability of critical habitat) were assessed and scored, and the top 25% of these scores within each habitat type were categorized as having PHCV. Migratory bird criteria related to each habitat(landbird stopover, waterfowl stopover, grassland/forest density and waterfowl density)were added together and the top 25% of these scores were categorized as having PHCV.Study units (2 ha hexagon) containing at 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 those areas less than 20 ha are 'Secondary Sites.' These sites were created with the same criteria, the only differentiating attribute it size.
