*Biomap *includes two components, Core Habitat and Critical Natural Landscape.  Core Habitat defines specific areas important for the long-term viability of species listed under the Massachusetts Endangered Species Act and the the State Wildlife Action Plan as well as exemplary natural communities, and intact ecosystems.  Critical Natural Landscape identifies intact landscapes in Massachusetts that can best support ecological processes and disturbance regimes, and a wide array of species and habitats over long time frames.
