Québec Biodiversity Atlas

Tardif B

ased on data held by the Centre de données sur le patrimoine naturel du Québec (CDPNQ), this atlas provides an overview of existing knowledge on Québec’s threatened or vulnerable species, discusses related conservation efforts to date and identifies biodiversity conservation priorities (hot spots).

It also proposes a draft regional action framework designed to ensure that biodiversity elements are taken into account in conservation and land management initiatives, and seeks to illustrate an approach specifying where and how to intervene.

Ultimately, a similar analysis, targeting a larger segment of biodiversity, is envisaged.
