Crit. Hab.

Good evening,
Keith, found a link in the Federal Register, April 13, 2004 having to do with the Cal. Red Legged Frog. Has some info that might be usefull. Just keep scrooling down, you will see it under Fish and Wildlife.
Also http://www.fs.fed.us/r9/wildlife/tes...al_habitat.pdf has an explanation.
Hope this helps.

Definitions of Critical habitat on the Web: (all links .gov or .org)

Under the Endangered Species Act, critical habitat is defined as "the specific areas within the geographic area occupied by a species on which are found those physical and biological features essential to the conservation of the species, and that may require special management considerations or protection; and specific areas outside the geographic area occupied by a species at the time it is listed, upon determination that suchareas are essential for the conservation of the species."

Under the Endangered Species Act, critical habitat is defined as "the specific areas within the geographic area occupied by a species on which are found those physical and biological features essential to the conservation of the species, and that may require special management considerations or protection; and specific areas outside the geographic area occupied by a species at the time it is listed, upon determination that such areas are essential for the conservation of the species."

Under the Endangered Species Act, critical habitat is defined as(1) the specific areas within a geographic area occupied by a federally listed species on which are found physical and biological features essential to the conservation of the species, and that may require special management considerations or protections; and (2) specific areas outside the geographic area occupied by a listed species, when it is determined that such areas are essential for the conservation of the species.
www.tpwd.state.tx.us/texaswater/rivers/glossaryleft.htm


Specific geographic areas, whether occupied by listed species or not, that are determined to be essential for the conservation and management of listed species, and that have been formally described in the Federal Register.
midwest.fws.gov/endangered/glossary/


Under ESA, the ecosystem elements that must be present and properly functioning to assure the continued existence of the species in question. The critical habitat is described and designated by the lead federal regulatory agency making a status determination for a species. Critical habitat can be designated in areas that are not being used by the species in question at the time the species is listed if the habitat is necessary for the conservation of the species. Critical habitat designations usually accompany final listing decisions, but may be delayed under certain circumstances.

Under the Endangered Species Act, (1) the specific areas within the geographic area occupied by a federally listed species on which are found physical and biological features essential to the conservation of the species, and that may require special management considerations or protection; and (2) specific areas outside the geographic area occupied by a listed species when it is determined that such areas are essential for the conservation of the species.
www.or.blm.gov/Medford/medford/glossary.html


Those areas designated as critical for the survival and recovery of threatened or endangered species (USFS).
water.usgs.gov/wicp/acwi/monitoring/glossary.html


Term used in the Federal Endangered Act whereby certain areas are defined as critical to the survival of a species. Such a classification may restrict land use activity within designated areas. No areas in Wisconsin have been classified as critical habitat for timber wolves by the Federal Government.

www.reo.gov/general/definitions_a-m.htm


Specific areas with physical or biological features essential to the conservation of a listed species and which may require special management considerations or protection. These areas have been legally designated via Federal Register notices.
www.gp.usbr.gov/nepa/solomon/glossary.htm


Living areas that are crucial for a species' survival based upon their unique needs. Some species are less able to adapt than others to changes in their habitat, and thus more vulnerable to the effects of human activity.

habitat that is important to the survival of a species.

is found to be a result of the activity, the opinion will contain suggestions for reasonable and prudent alternatives for that action which would minimize its impacts and allow the activity to proceed [Endangered Species Habitat Conservation Planning Handbook].
www.agc-oregon.org/public/regulatory_affairs/Terms_Acronyms.shtml


Habitat essential for the survival of a species (e.g., required for a key life stage or for obtaining prey). For example, a large body of water with fish is critical for the bald eagle.
