Lineage

Process step
Description
Process Description: We (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologists) identified the critical habitat areas by using many spatial data layers derived from a variety of Federal, State, and local agencies, and from private organizations and individuals. We identified the general vernal pool areas on which to focus our critical habitat designations based on discussions with local species experts and information in our files. To identify where vernal pool species and habitats occur we evaluated GIS data of vernal pool habitats by Holland (1998 and 2002), and species occurrences information from the 2001 California Natural Diversity Database (CNDDB 2001), University of California Riverside species database (UCR 2000), USFWS species occurrence database 2002, and unpublished species occurrence data in our files. We superimposed the vernal pool habitats with the species occurrence data over satellite images (Systeme Probatoire, d'Observation de la Terre [SPOT imagery], CNES/SPOT Image Corporation 1993-2000), and over 1-meter digital ortho-rectified photography in southern California (Emerge Corporation 2001). The use of SPOT imagery allowed us to identify landmarks such as roads, cities, rivers, and urban areas. Because of limitations of the Holland data and SPOT imagery on accurately identifying the extent of the vernal pool areas, we were required to refine the area boundaries based on additional GIS data layers. When necessary and available we used data which included soils information from the Soil Survey Geographic (SSURGO) databases (U.S. Department of Agriculture [USDA] 1998-2001), and the California State Soil Geographic (STATSGO) databases (USDA 1994). We used geologic and landform information developed by the California Department of Mines and Geology (CDMG, 2000) and Liss (2001). To identify the extent of flat or gently sloping topography where vernal pools are found we evaluated Digital Elevation Models from the U.S. Geologic Survey (2000). We also used a number of local GIS data sets for specific areas, including information developed through the Riverside Multiple Species HCP, Riverside County Flood Control (2002), and the Vernal Pools of Southern California Final Recovery Plan (Service 1998), habitat mapping for Butte County (EPA 1994), Tehama County (2001), Shasta County (2001), Placer County (Glazner 2001), Solano County (2000), Yolo County (1995), Sacramento County (1999), and San Joaquin County (2000) in California, and by the Rogue Valley Council of Governments in Oregon (Evans 2000). Other smaller scale mapping efforts were reviewed from Solano County Farmlands and Open Space (2000) and East Bay Regional Parks District (2001). The specific layers used and the methodology employed for each unit is described within the unit descriptions which are published in the Federal Register. The economic re-analysis projected economic impact that would result from designating critical habitat within the proposed units. Areas of vernal pool critical habitat falling within the twenty three Census 2000 tracts identified as having the greatest economic Surplus Lost were eliminated.. Final critical habitat legal descriptions were derived directly from the ArcGIS shapefile sketch properties table, listing the x and y coordinates of each polygon representing final critical habitat.
