Description:
Abstract:
Sensitive Biotic Community Identification for the Napa County Baseline Data Report (BDR)

Purpose:
To show areas of sensitive biotic communities within Napa County when joined to the veg_bdr_05 layer.

Supplemental information:
Biotic communities are the characteristic assemblages of plants and animals that are found in a given
range of soil, climate, and topographic conditions across a region. Sensitive biotic communities in the
County were identified using a two-step process.
1. An existing list of sensitive biotic communities prepared by the DFG (2003a) was first reviewed by
senior Jones & Stokes biologists, and those communities that may occur in the County were
identified. Because the community names in the DFG list (2003a) did not correspond directly with
the names used in the Land Cover Layer, a determination was made as to which land cover types
on the Land Cover Layer correspond to the communities on the DFG list.
2. The areal extent of each land cover types mapped in the County was generated from the land
cover layer. Those biotic communities with an areal extent of less than 500 acres in the County
(approximately 0.1% of the County) were identified. These communities were discussed with local
experts and their conservation importance established. Those that were not already on the original
DFG list and that were determined to be worthy of conservation were added to the list.
