This data set contains a binary map of the predicted habitat distribution for a terrestrial vertebrate species in Alabama. The predicted habitat map has a thirty meter resolution and is composed of a binary matrix of zeros and ones. Areas coded as one represent the presence of predicted habitat for a species in Alabama, while areas coded as zero identify where habitat is absent or not predicted. The spatial extent for this map is the state of Alabama however this map is also part of a larger regional map spanning a nine state area within the Southeastern United States. The map was developed as part of a cooperative effort among three mapping groups working in collaboration as the Southeast Gap Analysis Project (SEGAP). The mapping work was performed by the Alabama Gap Analysis Project (AL-GAP), Alabama Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit, Auburn University, AL; Biological and Spatial Information Center (BaSIC), North Carolina State University, NC; and the Natural Resources Spatial Analysis Laboratory (NARSAL), Institute of Ecology, University of Georgia, GA
This map was developed as part of the Southeast Gap Analysis Project (SEGAP) to identify available habitat for vertebrate species. It provides a coarse habitat foundation to perform a statewide vertebrate gap analysis, facilitate biodiversity assessments, and generate conservation planning objectives within the state of Alabama.
The map was developed as part of a cooperative effort among three mapping groups working in collaboration as the SEGAP. The mapping work was performed by the Alabama Gap Analysis Project (AL-GAP), Alabama Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit, Auburn University, AL; Biological and Spatial Information Center (BaSIC), North Carolina State University, NC; and the Natural Resources Spatial Analysis Laboratory (NARSAL), Institute of Ecology, University of Georgia, GA. For the 368 vertebrate species mapped at the Alabama extent, AL-GAP performed mapping for 173 species which included all neo-tropical migratory birds (e.g. warblers, vireos, buntings, tanagers, and thrushes), waterfowl, doves, anurans, snakes, turtles, bats, mice and skunks. BaSIC mapped 63 species consisting of shore-, marsh-, and pelagic birds, as well as swallows, sparrows, skinks, lizards and large mammals, and NARSAL was responsible for mapping the remaining 132 species composed of salamanders, waterdogs, hawks, local and non-migratory birds (e.g. woodpeckers, flycatchers, nuthatches, wrens and thrushes), as well as small mammals (e.g. squirrels, rabbits and shrews).

Map Development: AL-GAP vertebrate predicted habitat distribution maps were created following methods described in the GAP Analysis Handbook (Csuti and Crist 2000). These maps were created from a known range delineated using location records and already published range maps, and a habitat association model founded on current literature which detailed each species habitat requirements. Habitat information ranged from a species use of specific land cover types, defined in the GAP Land Cover Map of Ecological Systems for the State of Alabama (Kleiner et al. 2007), and their configuration on the landscape including, contiguous patch thresholds, forest interior and edge utilization, as well as other ancillary elements such as landform associations, elevation limits, and/or hydrology restrictions. The predicted habitat maps were created in ESRI Arc/Info GRID software using Arc Macro Language (AML) to script spatial queries associating known range limits with habitat parameters to generate a predicted habitat distribution map. Further information on these methods and specific vertebrate predicted habitat distribution maps can be found in Silvano et al. (2008).

Map Assessment: The reliability of the habitat maps were assessed by a panel of expert reviewers. Their comments were analyzed in a Bayesian Belief Network and a reliability measure which equated the probability or likelihood of improving the habitat map and model through a revision was quantified. Where reliability was low, revisions were warranted and thus where appropriate, changes were made to the known range and/or habitat model and the map was re-created. When reliability was high no changes were warranted and the model and habitat map were not revised. Further information on these methods and specific vertebrate predicted habitat distribution maps can be found in Silvano et al. (2007).

Data sets are named with the AL-GAP unique species identification label. For example the Flatwoods salamander is al_<baflsa>. The first letter indicates the species breeding status within the state "b" for breeding, "w" for wintering. The second letter represent the species taxa association, "a" for amphibian, "b" for birds, "m" for mammals, and "r" for reptiles. The last 4 letters are generated from the species common name. If the species common name is defined by two words, as with the Flatwoods salamander, the first two letters are taken from each word "fl" and "sa" and where a species common name is represented with one word (e.g. Hellbender), then the first 4 letters are used to represent the species.
