Service Description: Critical Habitat is one of seven standard input layers which support the USFS State and Private Forestry Potential Assessment Redesign Project. The critical habitat data is provided in raster format and is used to designate final critical habitats for all species contained in this dataset. In the past, species have become threatened, endangered, or gone extinct due to overhunting, as was the case with the Carrier Pigeon. In modern times, the major threat to species is loss of habitat due to development, dams, and pollution, so critical habitat has been designated in order to preserve the ecosystems where threatened and endangered species live. This dataset is a composite of all critical habitat features currently received from USFWS field offices. Data is classified into 3 classes: 0, 5, & 10, representing non-critical habitat, threatened species habitat and endangered species habitat. The Dataset is not to be used for official designation of critical habitat. Some of the major species represented here are the Gray Wolf in Minnesota; the Topeka Shiner in Iowa; the Mexican Spotted Owl and the Desert Tortoise in the Southwest; the Colorado Pikeminnow in the Colorado River; the Delta Smelt in the San Francisco Bay area; and the Marbled Murrelet, the Northern Spotted Owl, and the Chinook Salmon in the Pacific Northwest.
