Appendix A. A table showing showing climatic variables used to define the climate space of the conterminous United States (CONUS) and factor loadings of each variable on the first three principal component analysis axes; a table showing geographic extent, protection network coverage, land cover fraction, and land ownership of each climate domain; and figures showing maps of climatic variables for the CONUS; optimal partitioning of the climate space of the CONUS; size-elevation relationship...

A table showing showing climatic variables used to define the climate space of the conterminous United States (CONUS) and factor loadings of each variable on the first three principal component analysis axes; a table showing geographic extent, protection network coverage, land cover fraction, and land ownership of each climate domain; and figures showing maps of climatic variables for the CONUS; optimal partitioning of the climate space of the CONUS; size-elevation relationship of the climate domains and elevation of protected and unprotected areas; and distribution of climate conservation gaps and federal lands and representation of the climate domains by Bureau of Land Management, Fish and Wildlife Service, Forest Service, and National Parks Service.
