Abstract: The Department of Defense (DoD) performs proactive conservation of at-risk species as a strategy for minimizing restrictions on land use and management. The majority of federally listed and at-risk species (60%) on DoD lands are plants, and more than 35% of all at-risk plants occur on or near to 36 military installations and facilities in California. This regional concentration of at-risk species and DoD installations provides an ideal opportunity for a case study to demonstrate a management-prioritization framework based on the risk of species being federally listed and the potential impacts of listing them on the missions of affected installations. We applied established methods of threat characterization and decision analysis to generate (1) a framework for strategic prioritization of species management that is broadly applicable to other taxa and regions; (2) priority scores for 144 federally listed and at-risk plants on or near installations; (3) conservation strategies for high priority species; and (4) threat-impacts data.
