Abstract:

This report presents an examination of Federally listed Threatened and Endangered T E species on United States Army installations, and the results of a survey conducted to ascertain the kinds and quality of efforts being made to monitor these species in compliance with the Endangered Species Act of 1973 and AR 200-3. The report summarizes some general aspects of T E species on Army installations using information gleaned from previous reports and Internet sources, supplemented with the data collected during the monitoring survey. Data is presented on which installations have the largest numbers of T E species, which T E species affect the largest number of installations, and which T E taxa are most prevalent on installations. The relationships of Federal listing as T E to various alternative extinction risk classifications, and to State listing status, are explored. The report presents information on monitoring of T E species collected during a survey of a selected sample of Army installations. The completeness, variability, and consistency of the monitoring techniques reported are analyzed.
