Summary

Critical habitat are areas considered essential for the conservation of a listed species. These areas provide notice to the public and land managers the importance of these 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 where final critical habitat for the Ash Meadows gumplant (Grindelia fraxinopratensis) occur.

Use limitations

The GIS files and their associated coordinates are not the legal source for determining the critical habitat boundaries of species described within this dataset. Inherent in any data set used to develop graphical representations, are limitations of accuracy as determined by, among others, the source, scale and resolution of the data. While the Service makes every effort to represent the critical habitat shown with this 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 this 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.

The USFWS shall not be held liable for improper or incorrect use of the data and information described and/or contained herein. The GIS file, map products and the associated coordinates are not the definitive source for determining the critical habitat boundaries for this species as noted in the final rule, the textual unit descriptions constitute the legal source for determining the critical habitat boundaries. Users of the GIS file are cautioned to refer to the final textual unit descriptions provided in the final rule as the definitive source in determining critical habitat areas. Additionally, interested parties are encouraged to contact the Service for a definitive finding of whether a location is within critical habitat . 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.

Description
The dataset was downloaded from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Critical Habitat Portal, http://criticalhabitat.fws.gov/crithab/ on 9/6/2012 and then converted from Longitude / Latitude [WGS 84] to California Teale Albers NAD83 by the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG). DFG edited the metadata in some sections and restructured the attribute table.
