These data are intended to represent baseline data for wildlife communities and habitat conditions in these parks. They can be used to assess and monitor the park's ecological viability and sustainability.
These data are detections of reptiles in 2005 from visual encounter searches of an area constrained to a 100-m radius circle around each of 15 fixed sample points at Spears and Didion Ranches, Placer County, California. Surveys were done three times in April and May by trained observers who searched the entire 100-m radius (3.1 ha) circular plot looking on and under rocks, logs, and debris for reptiles and amphibians. Fifty-eight detections were made of five species of reptiles and one species of amphibian.
