The regional vulnerability of connectivity layer depicts the likelihood of development occurring in places that are important for connectivity between terrestrial cores. It is derived in part from the probability of development layer and the regional conductance index. This layer highlights areas that may serve as corridors of ecologically similar areas with currently low levels of development, that have a high probability of development in the future. It is created after the core areas and connectors, and should be used in conjunction with the core-connector layer at a minimum.
