Summary

These data document locations of animal species observed by the Biological Monitoring Program at specific places and times. They can be useful for satisfying Western Riverside County MSHCP species-specific monitoring objectives, modeling species-habitat associations, documenting species distributions, and any other presence-only data applications.

Description

The Biological Monitoring Program is a part of the Western Riverside County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP), which was permitted in June, 2004. The Monitoring Program monitors the status of 146 Covered Species within a designated Conservation Area to provide information to permittees, land managers, the public, and wildlife agencies ( i.e., the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service). Monitoring Program activities are guided by MSHCP species objectives for each Covered Species, the information needs identified in Section 5.3 of the MSHCP (http://www.rctlma.org/mshcp/volume1/sec5.html#5.3) or elsewhere in the document, and the information needs of the permittees (Dudek and Associates 2003) . The Monitoring Program seeks to provide sufficient scientifically reliable data to assess the MSHCPs effectiveness at meeting resource objectives and achieving or maintaining a healthy MSHCP Conservation Area in perpetuity.

This dataset was extracted from the Biological Monitoring Programs central database and includes data collected during field activities conducted by the Monitoring Program in calendar years 2005-2016. Taxa-specific field surveys included: stream searches for amphibians; aquatic sampling for vernal fairy shrimp and western spadefoot; line distance transect sampling and untimed area searches for Delhi sands flower loving flies; timed and untimed area searches for Quino checkerspot butterflies; electroshocking for stream fishes; defined area searches, transect, and artificial cover sampling for terrestrial reptiles; live trapping for western pond turtles; point counts for Black Swift, Cactus Wren, Lincolns Sparrow, lake birds, marsh birds, and riparian birds; area nest searches for Golden Eagles, Tricolored Blackbirds, Loggerhead Shrike, Nashville Warbler, Northern Harrier, and riparian birds; area searches for Mountain Plover; call playback surveys for Northern Goshawk, Williamsons Sapsucker, and California Spotted Owls; time constrained area searches for Purple Martin; line distance transect sampling and nest monitoring of coastal sage scrub birds; nest monitoring of Golden Eagles and riparian birds; transect sampling for over-wintering raptors; and Burrowing Owls; visual monitoring of Burrowing Owl nesting pairs and artificial burrows; radio telemetry of Turkey Vultures; live trapping for small mammals; area searches for Brush rabbits and San Diego black-tailed jackrabbits, and motion-triggered camera stations and track identification of mammalian carnivores.

Each record represents an observation of a specific species at a given location on a given date and time. Included are data for all species of vertebrates, butterflies, and other invertebrate species recorded during targeted field surveys. Non-covered invertebrate species other than butterflies are omitted due to the large numbers of observations and typically ubiquitous distributions of these species. Incidental observations of non-covered species made during targeted field activities and incidental observations of covered species made at any time in the field are included.

All surveys were conducted within the MSHCP Conservation Area, as established in the year of the surveys. However, data in this dataset represent observations made within the boundaries of the Conservation Area as it existed in 2016. A buffer of 30 meters around Conservation Area boundaries is allowed to account for error in GPS coordinates recorded in the field.

This dataset is intended for distribution to the general public as documentation of species presence at a specific place and time. These data are useful for modeling species-habitat associations, documenting species distributions, and any other presence-only data applications.
