Species Conservation Program: Errata/Minor Changes List to the SCP Web Published Assessments

Species Conservation Project logo

Below is a list of errata, or minor corrections made, to some of the species conservation assessments available on the index page (http://www.fs.fed.us/r2/projects/scp/assessments/index.shtml). The errata are displayed in descending chronological order starting with the most recent correction at the top. Please note that earlier versions of these assessments downloaded prior to the errata date are now outdated. The most current version is now posted on the site.



Blanding's turtle
 

12/10/09

Corrected spelling of Janet Hostetter’s last name on cover (photo credit), page 2 (Acknowledgments & Cover Photo Credit sections), and page 11 (Figure 1).

 

Sturgeon chub
 

6/3/09

Page 3: first paragraph (Status), last sentence. To improve accuracy, the following sentence was changed from: “The sturgeon chub is present on the Buffalo Gap National Grassland in South Dakota and the Thunder Basin National Grassland in Wyoming, but it is absent from other lands managed by the Region 2 of the USDA Forest Service.”
To: “The sturgeon chub is present on the Buffalo Gap National Grassland in South Dakota, but it is absent from other lands managed by the Region 2 of the USDA Forest Service.”

 

Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep
 

11/2/07

Page 49-50: The Alamosa Canyon and Conejos herd is incorrectly assigned to the San Juan National Forest, but actually occurs on the Rio Grande National Forest. Thus, the Rio Grande has 4 herds, rather than 3, and the San Juan has 5 herds, rather than 6.

 

Eriogonum visheri
 

1/10/07

Table 1 (pages 23 and 24): Replaced the following under “Habitat” column:

SD - No. 75: “On a badlands clay shelf sloping into a deep-cut drainage, soils are heavy white clay. Elevation approximately 6,687 feet” with “On a badlands clay shelf sloping into a deep-cut drainage, soils are heavy white clay. Elevation approximately 2,038 feet”.

SD - No. 76: “Flat to rolling grass uplands draining into clay basin floodplains; soils are sand and silt on uplands to heavy clay in basin bottoms. Elevation approximately 7,146 feet” with “Flat to rolling grass uplands draining into clay basin floodplains; soils are sand and silt on uplands to heavy clay in basin bottoms. Elevation approximately 2,178 feet”.

SD - No. 77: “Flat to rolling grass uplands draining into clay basin floodplains; soils are sand and silt on uplands to heavy clay in basin bottoms. Elevation approximately 7,182 feet” with “Flat to rolling grass uplands draining into clay basin floodplains; soils are silt and sand on uplands and heavy clay in basin bottoms. Elevation approximately 2,189 feet”.

 


American hog-nosed skunk
 

1/3/07

Page 15: Changed “These 14 records comThese 14 records comprise six localities because of the multiple specimens from Furnace Canyon, Baca County” to “These 14 records comprise six localities because of the multiple specimens from Furnace Canyon, Baca County”.

 

Festuca hallii

 

11/30/06

Page 11: Replaced “Another occurrence, not seen since 1985, was documented within the Pat O’Hara Potential Research Natural Area on the Shoshone National Forest, but this area currently does have any special status (Jones and Fertig 1999)” with “Another occurrence, not seen since 1985, was documented within the Pat O’Hara Potential Research Natural Area on the Shoshone National Forest, but this area currently does not have any special status (Jones and Fertig 1999)”. (The word “not” appeared to be missing.)

Page 53. Replaced “To remain compliant with the National Environmental Policy Act, the Pike San Isabel National Forest will re-evaluate all grazing allotments by 2008 (Quimby personal communication 2006)” with “To remain compliant with the National Environmental Policy Act, the Pike-San Isabel National Forest evaluates all livestock grazing allotments on a periodic basis. The allotments in question are scheduled for a NEPA-based analysis and decision by 2008 (Quimby personal communication 2006)”.

 


Snowshoe hare
 

8/29/06

On March 21, 2006, the White River National Forest amended their Forest Plan to revise their list of MIS. The snowshoe hare was not included on that revised list.

 


Pygmy nuthatch
 

8/29/06

On March 21, 2006, the White River National Forest amended their Forest Plan to revise their list of MIS. The pygmy nuthatch was not included on that revised list.

 


Machaeranthera coloradoensis
 

9/22/05

Changed peer review organization from Center for Plant Conservation to Society for Conservation Biology on the cover and under "Peer Review" heading.

 


Thelypodiopsis juniperorum
 

9/22/05

Changed peer review organization from Center for Plant Conservation to Society for Conservation Biology on the cover and under "Peer Review" heading.

 


Delphinium robustum
 

9/22/05

Changed peer review organization from Center for Plant Conservation to Society for Conservation Biology on the cover and under "Peer Review" heading.

 


Ipomopsis aggregata spp. weberi
 

9/22/05

Changed peer review organization from Center for Plant Conservation to Society for Conservation Biology on the cover and under "Peer Review" heading.

 


Boreal toad
 

6/14/04

Page 48 (bottom of 1st column):

To improve clarity, the following sentence was changed from:

"Habitat surveys are not recommended outside the known historic range of toads, particularly in habitats where boreal toads have not been known to occur (e.g. sagebrush desert) or in areas where management activities will not have a negative impact of toads or their habitat."

To:

"Given typically limited funds for boreal toad conservation, delineation of possible habitat and actual field surveys for boreal toads are not recommended outside the known historic range of the toad, nor are they recommended in ecosystems where boreal toads are not known to occur (e.g. sagebrush desert, low elevation grasslands, etc.). Viable, but previously unknown, breeding populations in such areas are unlikely, and conservation efforts will be more fruitful if targeted within the range and habitats described in this assessment.

 


Plains killifish
 

6/29/04

Table 2:

  • Added "ESA/" to the column titled USFS Status.
  • Changed "1993" to "2003" to all sources that reference "Regional Forester's Sensitive Species List, USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Region 1993" in the column titled Basis of Status.

Botrychium ascendens, B. crenulatum, and B. lineare
 

5/25/04

 


Northern goshawk
 

4/29/04

Changed Bergstorm 1985 to Bergstrom 1985 and Quires 2000 to Squires 2000 in Table 9.

 


Descurainia torulosa
 

9/21/05

Changed peer review organization from Center for Plant Conservation to Society for Conservation Biology on the cover and under "Peer Review" heading.

 

 

3/25/04

Added reference to Fertig and Thurston 2003 (Fertig, W. and R. Thurston 2003. Modeling the Potential Distribution of BLM Sensitive and USFWS Threatened and Endangered Plant Species in Wyoming (http://uwadmnweb.uwyo.edu/WYNDD/Reports/pdf_fertig/FinalReport_03BLMmodeling.pdf). Report prepared for the Bureau of Land Management – Wyoming State Office by WYNDD – University of Wyoming, Laramie, WY). Changes were made in:

  • Acknowledgements section
  • Figure 6 in List of Tables and Figures
  • Page 16 - body of text and figure 6 itself
  • Reference section

Draba smithii
 

3/25/04

Added an illustration to the assessment and named it as Figure 2. Renamed all previous figures except for figure 1.
