dc.description.abstractU.S. Army lands total nearly 12 million acres that must be managed in compliance with Federal and state environmental laws, including the Endangered Species Act. These legal requirements and stewardship objectives are the basis for the requirement that surveys of biodiversity and threatened and endangered species be conducted. These guidelines are intended to assist Army land managers in carrying out these surveys. The guidelines are presented as an eight-step process as follows: (1) define objectives and scope, (2) gather background information on individual species, (3) gather background infonnation on the survey area, (4) refine objective and scope, (5) prepare the survey plan, (6) obtain all permits and licenses (7) conduct the surveys, and (8) report the findings. Because these surveys often are completed under contract, sample items for developing scopes of work arc included in an appendix.en_US
