Community Based Environmental Protection Resource Book
Summary: Community-based environmental protection is action that local individuals and groups take to address their own environmental concerns. Ecosystem protection carries such activity beyond localized environmental issues, such as pollution from a particular factory or lead poisoning from paint in older housing, to consider the ecological health of the total local environment. This environment often extends beyond municipal borders. The EPA Office of Sustainable Ecosystems and Communities compiled this book in 1997 to identify practical approaches and tools to help communities carry out their own ecosystem protection efforts.

Mississippi Natural Heritage Program
Summary: The Mississippi Natural Heritage Program identifies the state's most significant natural areas through a comprehensive inventory of rare plant and animal species, exemplary natural communities, special geological features, and significant natural areas. From the inventory, the Natural Heritage Database compiles information on the distribution, biology, status, and preservation needs of these species and communities. Established in 1976, through a cooperative agreement between The Nature Conservancy, a private conservation organization and the Mississippi Parks Commission (now part of Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks), full administration of the program was assumed by the DWFP in 1978. The Mississippi Natural Heritage Program is part of an international network including State Natural Heritage Programs and Conservation Data Centers, all building on the same data collection methodology. The database is updated continuously and is used to set state, national and global priorities for the preservation of natural diversity.

Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC)
Summary: Due to the escalating costs of acquiring satellite images, in 1992 several federal agencies agreed to operate as a consortium in order to acquire satellite-based remotely sensed data for their environmental monitoring programs. Original members of the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC) consortium were the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) . Later joining the consortium were the National Atmospheric and Space Administration (NASA) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). During the 1990's, the MRLC resulted in several successful mapping programs, including the: (1) Coastal Change Analysis Project (C-CAP) administered by NOAA; (2) Gap Analysis Project (GAP) directed by the Biological Resources Division of the USGS; and the National Land Cover Data (NLCD) project directed by both the USGS and EPA. The data developed by these projects are available publicly either through download, or by contacting the agencies involved.
