Habitat Conservation Plans (HCP) are planning documents required as part of an application for an incidental take permit under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) of 1973. They describe the anticipated effects of the proposed taking, how those impacts will be minimized, or mitigated; and how the HCP is to be funded. HCPs can apply to both federally listed and non-listed species, including those that are candidates or have been proposed for listing. Conserving species before they are in danger of extinction or are likely to become so can also provide early benefits and prevent the need for listing.
Biodiversity Information Serving Our Nation (BISON) - Listed Species within Pacific Southwest Region (Region 8), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
Researchers collect species occurrence data, records of an organism at a particular time in a particular place, as a primary or ancillary function of many biological field investigations. Presently, these data reside in numerous distributed systems and formats (including publications) and are consequently not being used to their full potential. As a step toward addressing this challenge, the Core Science Analytics, Synthesis, and Libraries (CSAS&L) program of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is developing Biodiversity Information Serving Our Nation (BISON), an integrated and permanent resource for biological occurrence data from the United States. BISON will leverage the accumulated human and infrastructural resources...
These SEVEN geographic areas represent the general landscapes to be used for Strategic Habitat Conservaton in the Pacific Southwest Region of US Fish and Wildlife Service. These areas are generally based on Bailey's ecoregions as updated by the US Forest Service. Bailey's ecoregions distinguish areas that share common climatic and vegetation characteristics. These geographic areas represented by these landscapes generally represent the "section" or finest level of detail in Bailey's ecoregions. The most divergence from Bailey's occurs in the Klamath Basin region where the Klamath Basin landscape is more closely aligned with the USGS hydrological unit boundaries of that landscape. Some areas that generally would...
This data layer defines Pacific Southwest Region endangered species office leads for species consultations and support. This data was defined based on an internal 2014 US Fish and Wildlife Serviceas inter-office Memorandums of Understanding. This boundary generally reflects which individual offices will have jurisdiction for endangered species consultations and support.
This community of practice is used by the Pacific Southwest Region of US Fish and Wildlife Service to manage and share data, projects, and services.
