Buffered Natural Heritage SitesEntry ID: USDA0233
Abstract: This dataset contains information on sites which include rare,
threatened and endangered species, and significant communities
in Vermont. Most of the sites were field located by Vermont
Nongame and Natural Heritage Program biologists. The remainder
were located by other persons: the accuracy of these sites may
not have been field verified. The sites were buffered by ... 300
meters to represent the area within which the true site location
is likely to fall. Rare plants and animals tracked by the
Vermont Nongame and Natural Heritage Program are native to the
state and considered rare for one or more reasons: they have
particular habitat requirements, are on the edge of their ranges
and/or are vulnerable to disturbance or collection.
Collection Organization: Vermont Nongame and Natural Heritage
Collection Methodology: Point locations were located based on
site visits. Latitude/longitude coordinates scaled from USGS
maps are maintained in a database of sites by the Nongame and
Natural Heritage Program. These coordinates were converted to
State Plane meters.
Collection Frequency: Annual update.
Update Characteristics: Last update 11/30/90.
Data Center: Nongame and Natural Heritage Program
Dissemination Media: Digitizing ongoing.
