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 2006 under 2 ft x 2 ft dimension plywood coverboards at four of the 15 sample points at Spears and Didion Ranches, Placer County, California. There are 81 coverboards in a 9 board by 9 board array (on 15 m spacing) centered on the sample points. Coverboards were placed in oak woodland and annual grassland habitat in November-December 2006 and checked on a bi-weekly basis between March-July 2006. All 204 animals found under the coverboards were counted, identified to species, and aged and sexed.
