Summary
Abstract: GAP species range data show a coarse representation of the total areal extent of a species or the geographic limits within which a species can be found (Morrison and Hall 2002).
To represent these geographic limits, GAP compiled existing GAP data, where available, and NatureServe data (Patterson et al. 2003, Ridgely et al. 2007, NatureServe 2010) IUCN data (IUCN 2004), where needed. Data provided ... View entire text

Purpose: The mission of the U.S. Geological Survey Gap Analysis Program (GAP; http://gapanalysis.usgs.gov) is to provide state, regional, and national biodiversity assessments of the conservation status of native vertebrate species and natural land cover types and to facilitate the application of this information to land management activities. Species range data are required to assess overall species ... View entire text
