Abstract: Natural habitat remains intact and rare species exist to a remarkable extent on military installations, even in the presence of military training. However, there has been little field research directed at identifying and quantifying possible impacts to threatened and endangered species (TES) from disturbances related to training activities. This research describes known impacts to TES resulting from military training, describes potential impacts to TES by reporting impacts from similar activities such as recreational use, and generally identifies gaps in current knowledge about the impact of military training on TES to encourage future research. This research serves as an introduction to the ecological processes that can lead to impacts on sensitive species. An increased information base about how impacts can occur will assist trainers in decisionmaking and planning to mitigate impacts and encourage communication between the natural resources community and the training community at Major Commands and installations.
