CWHR Life History Accounts and Range Maps

Select a species





These life history accounts and range maps represent updated versions of the species information in the three-volume set "California's Wildlife" edited by Zeiner, D.C. et al 1988-1990. There are also accounts for 48 more species here than in the original publication, bringing the total up to 694.

The information was prepared under contract with the best available experts for various taxonomic groups. Authors and reviewers names appear on the individual life history accounts. Accounts were initially edited by Marshall White and, in later years, by California Wildlife Habitat Relationships (CWHR) Program staff with the California Department of Fish and Game. Update dates are noted on individual life history accounts. Revision histories are also noted on individual range maps.

The life history accounts and range maps are designed to support the computerized species-habitat relationships database models in the CWHR System. The system is continually being revised. Users are encouraged to submit corrections and additional information to:
