Summary

Critical habitat constitutes areas considered essential for the conservation of a listed species. These areas provide notice to the public and land managers of the importance of the areas to the conservation of this species. Special protections and/or restrictions are possible in areas where Federal funding, permits, licenses, authorizations, or actions occur or are required.

Description

These data identify, in general, the areas of Final critical habitat for Allium munzii (Munz's onion).

Use limitations

The GIS files and their associated coordinates are not the legal source for determining the critical habitat boundaries of species described in this dataset, but are used to identify areas which contain the physical and biological features essential to the conservation of the species or areas otherwise determined to be essential. Inherent in any dataset used to develop graphical representations, are limitations of accuracy as determined, among others, the source, scale and resolution of the data. While the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service makes every effort to represent the critical habitat shown with data as completely and accurately as possible (given existing time and resource constraints), the USFWS gives no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the accuracy, reliability, or completeness of these data. In addition, the USFWS shall not be held liable for improper or incorrect use of the data described and/or contained herein. Graphical representations provided by the use of these data do not represent a legal description of the critical habitat boundary. The user is referred to the critical habitat textual description in the appropriate final rule for this species as published in the Federal Register. These data are to be used only in the context of the definition and purpose of critical habitat. This primarily relates to Section 7 consultation under the Endangered Species Act. These data may be used for planning and land management purposes. They are not to be used for legal survey use. Please refer to Federal Register Citation Number 78FR22626, published 20130416 for the legal critical habitat information.

Process step
Description
--- The Proposed critial habitat, published April 17, 2012, described five potential critical habitat units. Those units were created using the steps described below. This Final critical habitat consists only of Unit 3. We have determined that the benefits of exclusion outweigh the benefits of inclusion for previously Proposed critical habitat contained within lands managed under the Western Riverside County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan, the Rancho Bella Vista Habitat Conservation Plan, and the Southwestern Riverside Multi-species Reserve Cooperative Management Agreement. Therefore, the Secretary is exercising his discretion under section 4(b)(2) of the Act to exclude Units 1, 2, 4, and 5 of Proposed critical habitat for Allium munzii. ---Steps in Proposed critical habitat creation include: 1)Buffered 2005-2011 Western Riverside County Regional Conservation Authority(WRCRCA) and 2010 Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Garden (RSABG) (Unit 3 only) point occurrence data with a 56-meter radius. 2)Combined: a-buffered point data. b-specific area and 80-meters polygons in the California Dept. of Fish and Game's California Natural Diversity Database (CNDDB) data (using confirmed occurrences). c-clay soil polygons associated with occurrences (Altamont, Auld, Bosanko, & Porterville clays). 3)Removed (or did not include initially) developed areas or unsuitable habitat using USDA NAIP 2010 (NAIP) aerial photography. 4)Unit 2A, Temescal Valley: Unit boundaries were drawn using data from Helix Environmental Planning, Inc. (Helix) report, clay soils, and NAIP aerial photography. Cross-validated our interpretation from NAIP using Google Earth imagery. 5)Unit 4B, South Perris/Bachelor Mountain: Digitized graphic occurrence points from map in Rancho Bella Vista Comprehensive Environmental Management Plan from project file in file room. Unit boundaries drawn based on those points, 450-meter contour line, and NAIP aerial photography. Cross-validated our interpratation from NAIP using Google Earth imagery. Converted point graphics to shapefile. ---GIS layers used include: 1)2004 Proposed Critical Habitat and 2005 Final Critical Habitat for Munz's onion. 2)USGS 10-meter digital elevation model. 3)2005 California ownership. 4)2011 Riverside County parcel assessor data. 5)NRCS SSURGO and STATSGO soil. 6)USGS geology. 7)Species occurrence data from CNDDB, Helix, McCollum Asso., RSABG, Univ. of Cal. Riverside, WRCRCA. 8)WRCRCA data on Criteria Areas, Narrow Endemic Plant Surveys, Public and Quasi-Public conserved lands, and 2010 Annual Report data on Acquisitions/Gains and Project Losses. 9)US Fish & Wildlife Service data on the Western Riverside County MSHCP Conceptual Reserve Design and Munz's onion modeled habitat. 10)USDA NAIP 2010 satellite imagery. 11)ArcGIS Online's I3 Imagery Prime World 2D. 12)Google Earth aerial photography was also used to cross-validate interpretations made from examination of the two satellite imagery layers listed above. 13)USGS 1:24K and 1:100K digital raster graphics (topo maps).
