Abstract:

A need arose during the conduct of Threatened and Endangered Species TES research for a source of material about the Army s priority TES that would be accessible to primarily non-biologist researchers performing various studies on habitat associations using remote sensing, GIS, and other technologies. This is a primer to the characteristics of the species, and why they were of interest to the Army it also identifies in a preliminary way where the critical gaps were in our knowledge about the TES. This material is intended to be used primarily by research, land management, and training directorate personnel who are not trained biologists, or are not trained with respect to one or more of the species included. The suggested uses include general orientation as to the characteristics and needs of the various species, and awareness of the nature of the potential for Army involvement with them. Although the information presented here is from reliable sources, all references to this document in subsequent reports and publications should be considered secondary, and the original sources should be cited where appropriate. The material may also be provided to contractors who are new to the location or have not worked in the habitats previously.
