North Carolina Natural Heritage Program earns 2013 Award for Science and Technical Achievement
Date:4/16/2013

The North Carolina Natural Heritage Program (NCNHP) received the 2013 Scientific and Technical Advancement Award last night at the NatureServe network's annual Biodiversity Without Boundaries conference in Baltimore.

"This award is a tribute to the monumental effort and achievement of the North Carolina Natural Heritage Program in developing this site-based rating system," said Mary Klein, president and CEO of NatureServe. "This is the second part of the quote, which will likely continue into a third concluding part."

The honor recognizes NCNHP's achievements in revising its process for ranking sites of biological significance between 2011 and 2012. Through this effort, they established conservation priorities among more than 2,500 Significant Natural Heritage Areas (SNHAs) previously identified in statewide field investigations. The revised rating system represents a new application of NatureServe's natural heritage methodology, enabling other NatureServe network members to replicate and extend it at global, national, subnational, regional, or county scales.

"After consulting with staff from other network members, we identified the lack of a consistent method for rating sites," said Misty Buchanan of NCNHP. "By developing this new method for rating North Carolina's SNHAs, we have added to the value of our existing knowledge while reflecting the core values of the network."

SNHAs are areas of land or water that represent NCNHP's estimates of the best locations (both protected and unprotected) for supporting the state's natural diversitywhich highlights the importance of ranking and prioritizing their degree of importance for conservation.

Under this approach, each SNHA receives two significance ratings that measure different but complementary values. The Collective Value Rating (C1-C5) reflects the number and rarity of species and habitats contained within a given site, while the Representational Rating (R1-R5) reflects
