Description:
Abstract: This dataset is produced for the Government of Alberta and is available to the general public. Note that the distribution contact is different for the general public than for Government of Alberta ministries. Please consult the Distribution Information of this metadata for the appropriate contact to acquire this dataset. The Greater Short-horned Lizard (Phrynosoma hernandesi), previously called the Eastern Short-horned Lizard (Phrynosoma douglassii brevirostre), is designated as an Endangered species in Alberta (under Alberta's Wildlife Act). The Greater Short-horned Lizard Range dataset replaces the former Eastern Short-horned Lizard Range dataset. A smoothed minimum convex polygon (MCP) was used to delineate a range based on observations from relevant databases in Alberta. Additional considerations were used to further filter range boundaries after observation data were plotted. Historical/extirpated observations were removed; bio- and geophysical restrictions to species patterns (e.g., rivers, elevation, ecoregions) were used to refine ranges as appropriate, and species experts reviewed maps and provided additional insight. Habitat Suitability Indices and Resource Selection Functions and inclusion of the Greater Short-horned Lizard Habitat layer further refined the boundary. Once an MCP was adequately modified, its border was smoothed. Greater Short-horned Lizard range was based upon 10 years of FWMIS observation data records.
Purpose: To provide industrial operators and government departments information regarding the location of Greater Short-horned Lizard range for the application of appropriate wildlife surveys. Specific operating conditions may apply upon the results of wildlife surveys.
Supplemental Information: Greater Short-horned Lizard Range distributions have been endorsed by Alberta Environment and Parks, Government of Alberta.
