Abstract : Mankind is causing a mass extinction of plant and animal species. The Army, as steward of 25 million acres of public lands, is being asked to play an increasingly decisive role in recovering endangered species. At the same time, the increased range, mobility, and lethality of modern weapons requires larger training areas, and pressures the dwindling habitats of many such species. This study examines the conflict between the Army and its endangered species, and proposes a methodology to allow both to co-exist.
