maps included on these pages have been synthesized from a number
of sources. The boundaries of the Preserve have been defined
using a map
created by Betsy Darlington of the Finger
Lakes Land Trust.
map of the topography
of the Preserve overlays the boundaries onto a scan of a portion
of the United States Geological
Survey West Danby Quadrangle (7.5 Minute Series, 1:24000
Scale, Stock #TNY0924).
cover maps were adapted from "Resource
Inventory & Management Options for the Lick Brook and Biodiversity
presentation to the Land Committee of the Finger Lakes Land Trust,
November 3, 1995. This report was the work of Cornell University students in Horticulture
440: Restoration Ecology , under the direction of Dr.
Thomas H. Whitlow.
Our thanks to Dr. Whitlow for kindly making this resource available
for our use.
Preserve was divided into 43 collecting
sectors based on the above information. Each sector was circumscribed
using a combination of geographic features, soil types and vegetative
cover. Each sector is relatively homogeneous with respect to
ecology, and the approximate boundaries can be easily recognized
in the field.
