Status reports containing more detailed information about the priority conservation areas of each species. The first summary provides a view from the technical perspective of how the biological reserve has been assembled. The second summary provides a view from the historical and process perspective of how the biological reserve has been assembled.
To facilitate development of the Environmental Impact Statement which must accompany the Section 10 multi-species conservation proposal, a series of issue papers have been written. This study presents a brief look at outdoor recreation issues and describes the impacts of five alternative permit strategies might have on the County's ability to maintain recreation opportunities.
Survey results for wetland plant communities of the Agua Caliente Park and nearby La Cebadilla property. The study also documented the presence or absence of Huachuca water umbel, a plant listed as endangered in Pima County. By studying the wetland plants of the La Cebadilla property, and through historic herbarium collections, the biologist found that several plants still present at La Cebadilla were known to be present at the Agua Caliente Ranch at the turn of the century.
Reviews the planning efforts and analyzes the existing background reports, master plans, and management plans of parks and preserves owned by Pima County. A comparison of the planning documents, natural and cultural resources, threats and stressors, inventories, monitoring and research activities is presented.
Suggests where connections exist and provides a look at the resources within existing and proposed parks and preserves, based on current management and planning documents. It frames open space possibilities by outlining the known potential of one ranch conservation area, parks, and preserve areas in eastern Pima County.
Describes the relation of the current and proposed system of mountain parks and preserves to the ongoing multi-species conservation planning process. Business interests will be able to pursue land uses which impact habitat, so long as defined conservation standards are met. This report simply frames planning possibilities by outlining the known potential of twelve park and preserve areas in eastern Pima County.
The cornerstone of any habitat conservation plan is the establishment of a set of reserves that are ultimately managed to preserve or enhance populations of a particular species or suite of species. Also, with any priority species in a particular region there are geographic areas that are much more important to the species than others. Identifying those areas is an important part of the planning process and a required activity to help assure that the best habitat areas for each species are identified and targeted for inclusion within the reserve system.
A preliminary analysis that has been drafted in conjunction with participating federal agencies. Land managing entities provided information and later a detailed review of fact sheets that summarize each reserve in terms of its size, ownership, authorizing documents, land use activities, priority vulnerable species, exotic and non-native species, baseline information, GAP status, acquisitions, management plans, research, monitoring and recovery programs. The study proposes eight Reserve Management Areas that include land managers who could work together across administrative boundaries.
Describes methods that are used in order to prepare reserve design alternatives in the area of biological conservation. The report also provides a brief history of reserve design theory, and demonstrates how the principles of biological reserve design have been extended to the other Elements of the Sonoran Desert conservation plan.
