Priority Conservation Areas: Sonoran Desert Conservation Plan

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

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.

Role of Adaptive Management: Sonoran Desert Conservation Plan

Description

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

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.

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.
