      Research and Monitoring

Monitoring and Research activities will ensure that the conservation measures are being met, that the program receives habitat credit, and that the program can move forward with adaptive management, to improve creation and management of habitat for these species. Types of monitoring and research include: species research, system monitoring, and post-development monitoring.

Species Research:  The species research addresses information gaps in the knowledge of the life history and habitat requirements of covered and evaluation species that is necessary for directing the successful establishment and management of created habitats. It includes development and testing of methods to detect the presence of covered and evaluation species to allow for effective monitoring.

The following are links to research activities that were completed or closed:

System Monitoring:  The system monitoring determines the ongoing presence of covered species and their habitats in the LCR MSCP planning area.

Post-Development Monitoring: The post-development monitoring determines the progress of habitat creation and management towards achieving the Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) biological goals and to collect information necessary to assess the efficacy of habitat creation designs and habitat management prescriptions.
