Description: Technical Report
Abstract: Using data from a DoD Species of Concern (SOC) report and recent evaluations of urbanization encroachment trends near military installations, a prediction of the effect of that urbanization to 2020 on the SOC was made. This was a first-tier analysis of the likelihood that an animal SOC would be adversely affected by urban encroachment in the next 15 years and might seek refuge on the nearby installation If so, this SOC would become a potentially important species to the Army by requiring increased management and resources.
