1Includes most Special Status Species known or believed to occur within or adjacent to the Planning Area - with the exception of extirpated species not planned for recovery within the planning area by USFWS. Also includes other species associated with habitats that are vulnerable to management practices, game species, and other high-interest species such as raptors and herons. BLM Tracking species are not listed.
2Information derived from Brown, 1985, Appendices 8, 19, and 20, with limited modifications based on more recent literature and local observations. Symbols identify primary habitats vulnerable to intensive timber management and speciesrelated limiting factors identified by District biologists.
3These species are called torrent salamanders by some researchers. They are 2 of 4 species that were formerly considered one species: the Olympic salamander, R. Olympicus.
4This species was erroneously called wrightii, but has been corrected to wrightorum (Intl. code of Zool. Nomenclature, Article 32, 1985).
5Genus sometimes listed as Arborimus.
LEGEND - Common Name
SS BLM Special Status Species based on Oregon State Office database of November 1994. Includes Federal Register Spp. to that date. Species accounts and effects are presented in sections on Special Status Species (Wildlife).
Neotropical Migrants (at least some individuals winter in the tropics - Love, 1990.)
LEGEND - Vulnerable Habitats & Limiting Factors:
CM = Cool, moist microclimate is an essential life requirement.
DD = Large dead and down (fallen) trees essential/primary habitat for one or more life needs.
DS = Densely stocked stands of mid and late seral conifers required for reproduction.
DT = Dead tree (snag) primary habitat for foraging or reproduction.
HW = Headwater streams, (generally 3rd order and smaller) and their riparian zones, are primary habitat for one, or more, life needs.
HD = Hardwoods or coniferhardwood stands - primary habitat for one or more life needs.
JX = Juxtaposition of two, or more, habitats required as primary habitat for all life needs.
LT = Large (green) tree/limbs required for nest substrate.
OF = Mature or old growth forests are primary habitat for one or more life needs. Natural (unmanaged) stands of the late seral stage may be suitable for some species. Stands younger than late seral are generally unsuitable for one, or more, life needs.
OR = Same as OF except species use is strongly oriented toward riparian (or other wetland).
RA = Red alder forest (polesize and older) primary habitat for one, or more, life needs.
SH = Special (unique) habitats essential for one, or more, life needs.
SM = Small creatures with small home ranges and low mobility.
SE = Secretive species highly sensitive to human intrusion at least during critical periods of life cycle, or in crucial portions of home range.
TC = Cavity in tree (live or dead) required for reproduction.
WQ = High water quality (cold and clear) essential life requirement.
O = Vulnerable habitats or limiting factors (if any) are other than above.
U = Vulnerable habitats & limiting factors currently undetermined.
(SA) = SEIS/ROD Special Attention Species or (SA) Groups of Species
NP = Native Prairie
S = Springs
P = Ponds, bogs, marshes
M = Natural balds and meadows
Z = Riparian zones of large streams
F = soils in old forests
