The purpose of the assessment presented here was to identify and evaluate stressors and threats to groundwater-dependent ecosystems (GDEs) in Nevada by using the Nevada iGDE database along with additional data. Stressors were considered things that are currently impacting GDEs, whereas threats were things that could potentially impact GDEs in the future. In consultation with managers and scientists, we identified five themes of stressors and threats:
- groundwater withdrawals
- non-native species
- additional impacts due to human development
Raw spatial data from this assessment as well as the original Nevada iGDE database can be downloaded at here.
