Summary

Critical habitat constitutes areas considered essential for the conservation of a listed species. These areas provide notice to the public and land managers of the importance of the 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 of Final critical habitat for Rana sierrae (Sierra Nevada Yellow-Legged Frog).

Use limitations

The GIS files and their associated coordinates are not the legal source for determining the critical habitat boundaries of species described in this dataset, but are used to identify areas which contain the physical and biological features essential to the conservation of the species or areas otherwise determined to be essential. Inherent in any dataset used to develop graphical representations, are limitations of accuracy as determined, among others, the source, scale and resolution of the data. While the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service makes every effort to represent the critical habitat shown with 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 these 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. Please refer to Federal Register Citation Number 81FR59045, published 20160826 for the legal critical habitat information.

Description
The features in this shapefile represent final critical habitat subunits for the Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog. These polygon features were digitized based on boundary delineations drawn on paper maps by the project's lead biologist. Referece data layers on the paper maps included California watershed boundaries, (Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD)), streams with arrows displaying flow direction, (National Hydrography Dataset (NHD), MaxEnt model habitat quality criteria (Derived by Roland Knapp), a hillshade surface derived from a 30-by 30 meter California digital elevation model(DEM), a polygon displaying a 3 Kilometer extant population buffer (a 3 Kilometer buffer created around extant populations of the Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog), a polygon displaying a 1000 meter distance aggregation of the MaxEnt model habitat quality criteria polygons (a 1000 meter distance aggregaton polygon created by the Aggregate Polygons tool), and lastly NGS topographic data. Heads-up digitizing of the paper map delineations was performed using these reference layers as guidelines to trace the boundaries of final critical habitat subunits. The final critical habitat subunits were digitized at a scale of 1:24,000 using a UTM Zone 10, NAD 83 Coordinate System. For more detailed information on the lead biologist's criteria for delineating the final critical habitat subunits, please refer to the "Final Critical Habitat Designation" document, under the section "Criteria used to Identify Critical Habitat".
