Summary

The purpose of this inventory was to map the distribution of extant vernal pool complexes in Modoc Nationalk Forest. The inventroy was designed for use by the Forest Service to make informed decisions in sensitive species and off-road vehicle management.

Description

This Arc/Info coverage is a polygon layer of vernal pool complexes in the Devil's Garden and Doublehead ranger districts of Modoc National Forest.

Supplemental information
In 2005, Dr. Robert F. Holland interpreted black and white digital orthophoto quadrangles to map vernal pool habitats. Most of the othrophoto quadrangles were compiled from air photos taken in summer of 2001. Individual polygons were digitized on-screen using Arc9.0. Obvious disturbances (see Entity Attributes below) were counted as each polygon was completed.
