In addition to these more general questions, we asked a series of questions focused on two PHS publications. One was the recently released Landscape Planning for Washington's Wildlife: Managing for Biodiversity in Developing Areas. Some respondents said they have used this new publication. Most who have used it said they found it to have value for answering land use planning-related questions. The other publication we assessed through the survey was WDFW’s Management Recommendations for Washington’s Priority Habitats: Riparian. This older publication (published in 1997) is one that WDFW is looking into possibly updating. To assess if an update is warranted, we wanted to know who was using it. We also wanted to know what other publications were being used to addressed riparian habitat management. Most respondents said they still used the PHS riparian recommendations. Those that said they use other publications provided us with a wide range of titles.
