Amphibian and Reptile Surveys
Baseline biological surveys and studies were conducted in the project area. Surveys reported here focus specifically on potential habitat for amphibians: the lentic habitats (ponds and stock tanks) and lotic habitats (ephemeral drainages and creeks) in the Oak Flat/East Plant Area, including portions of Devils Canyon south of U.S. Route 60. The purpose of this report is to compile baseline data on amphibian and reptile species from surveys conducted for amphibians in 2011 and from previous surveys in 2003 and 2004.
