DESCRIPTION: Management Recommendations for Washington's Priority Species, Volume V: Mammals is currently in preparation. Until the volume is ready to be printed, several of the management recommendations that are ready for publication are available here. Additional species will be posted as their associated chapters are completed. All management recommendations are updated periodically. Though considerable effort has been made to present these versions in their final form, they may differ to some degree from the eventual printed renditions.
ABSTRACT: This volume will be the forth published in a series of volumes containing species management recommendations. Each species account within this volume provides information on the mammal’s geographic distribution and the rationale for its inclusion on the PHS List. The habitat requirements and limiting factors for each species are discussed, and management recommendations addressing the issues in these sections are based on the best available science. Each species document includes a bibliography of the literature used for its development, and each has a key points section that summarizes the habitat requirements and management recommendations for the species.
