Description: Species of conservation concern, which we define as species with rare or declining populations or habitats, often number in the hundreds or even thousands within a given ecosystem. Moreover, these species typically span a wide spectrum of taxa and are associated with a broad set of ecological characteristics and diverse management challenges. Management designed to fully meet the needs of large numbers of species is by definition impossible; each species occupies its own niche, and explicitly addressing each of these multidimensional niches would far exceed resources available to managers. The management challenge is thus how the many dimensions of multispecies requirements can be reduced to a workable number for practical management application and yet be sufficiently robust to represent the broad, ecological needs of the comprehensive set of species that management must address based on current policies and regulations.

Keywords: Wildlife habitat, species conservation, wildlife habitat management
