Abstract: The purpose of a Biological Assessment is to evaluate the potential effects of a federal action on both listed species and those proposed for listing, including designated and proposed critical habitat, and determine whether the continued existence of any such species or habitat is likely to be adversely affected by the federal action. The Biological Assessment is also used in determining whether formal consultation or a conference is necessary [Federal Register 51 (106): Section 402.1 (f), pg. 19960, 3 June 1986]. This is achieved by: • Reviewing the results of an on-site inspection of the area affected by the federal action to determine if listed or proposed species are present or occurs seasonally. • Reviewing the views of recognized experts on the species at issue and relevant literature. • Analyzing the effects of the federal action on species and habitat including consideration of cumulative effects, and the results of any related studies. • Analyzing alternative actions considered by the federal agency for the proposed action.
