CEAP (Conservation Effects Assessment Program)

CEAP has been quantifying conservation efforts for years. For more information check out the website and our paper The Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP): a national scale natural resources and conservation needs assessment

field Wetland CEAP

We are currently gathering data from field sites in freshwater depressions in Maryland, Playas in the Texas panhandle, and Prairie Potholes in North Dakota. For more information on the data we collect for ALMANAC, look through our Gathering Field Data section in Support. (Picture:wetland in Maryland)

Rangeland in Arizona Rangeland CEAP

 We are working in native ecosystems across  the Western United States to gather field  data to inform ALMANAC. We recently  published two papers. The first paper  presents the plant parameters for modeling  western rangeland plant functional groups  based on years of field data from California, Utah, Montana, Colorado, and New Mexico.  The second paper presents ALMANAC simulations and plant parameters determined from  field data gathered in Montana on native range grasses.
