Extent of available data.
This data layer identifies Native Plant Communities that intersect with the Minnesota Biological Survey Sites of Biodiversity Significance. It was developed by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and contains information from the Minnesota Biological Survey, State Park land cover data, MN DNR Forestry native plant community data, and Wildlife Management Areas land cover data. It includes areas representing the highest quality native plant communities remaining in surveyed areas. These areas are a focus of conservation efforts.
