Competing Interests

The authors have read the journal's policy and have the following conflicts: arguably as an employee of The Nature Conservancy, JRBF might be perceived as biased in authoring a paper that evaluates The Nature Conservancy's work. This does not alter the authors' adherence to all the PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials. However, some of the spatial data used is considered sensitive so not all of the raw data can be shared. The authors are happy to share the tabular output of the spatial analysis (which was then summarized), and the public portion of the spatial data is already available for download at http://maps.tnc.org.
