Abstract : The primary objective of this work is to provide military installation planners with a source book on the state of the art in how to analyze the probability and risks of habitat fragmentation for animal Threatened and Endangered Species (TES). The document provides a review of habitat fragmentation issues, focusing on those of highest concern to Army Military Installation Land Managers. It has been designed to capture information developed during the 4-year ERDC research project called: Quantify Effects of Fragmentation and Approaches to Mitigate. Major components include: 1) TES habitat background survey; 2) Army TES Life histories and potential supporting data types; 3) Description of major Fragmentation initiatives; 4) Survey of the major Fragmentation modeling techniques; 5) Evaluation of Data Quality; 6) Potential inputs for a long term TES monitoring capability; 7) Recommendations for future directions.
