The purpose of this process memorandum is to identify the best sources of information related to climate change in the Southwest and provide a summary of this information for specialists working on the Resolution Copper Mine and Land Exchange EIS.

The following report summarizes the affected environment and effects from the no action and proposed action alternative on species listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), as well as Forest Service Sensitive species, migratory bird species, and Management Indicator Species.

The proposed project would not result in significant habitat alteration, effects outside the project area, cumulative effects on listed species or habitat, or cumulative effects on sensitive species or habitat.
