Description:
Abstract: This dataset for swift fox (Vulpes velox) is produced for the Government of Alberta and is available to the general public. Please consult the Distribution Information of this metadata for the appropriate contact to acquire this 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. Once an MCP was adequately modified, its border was smoothed. Swift Fox Range was based upon recent observation data records from 2002.
Purpose: To provide industrial operators and government departments information regarding the location of swift fox range for the application of appropriate wildlife surveys. Specific operating conditions may apply upon the results of wildlife surveys.
Supplemental Information: Swift Fox Range distributions have been endorsed by Alberta Environment and Parks.
