Abstract: The presence of species on military training lands that could potentially be listed as threatened or endangered as defined under the Endangered Species Act as Species at Risk (SAR) may result in increased training restrictions if they were to be listed. Accurate and repeatable remote sensing methods in combination with field surveys are required to quantify the presence, and to characterize and monitor the spatial extent of SAR or their habitats on military lands. A list of DOD priority SAR species that have greatest potential to impact the training mission were assessed to identify and prioritize those with greatest potential for detection, mapping, and monitoring with remotely sensed data. Seven species were identified with greatest potential and a prototype plan for research case studies to acquire, analyze, and validate remote sensing methods to detect, map, and monitor such species was provided.
