Description: In south-central Utah, lands within and adjacent to Capitol Reef National Park contain populations of nine rare plant species. In an effort to enhance the combined knowledge about these species, the Bureau of Land Management, the USDA Forest Service, and the National Park Service signed an Interagency Agreement and hired an interagency biologist and field crew to conduct field surveys for each of these species. Eight of these species are federally listed and one is a candidate for listing. Survey efforts, beginning in 2000 and continuing through 2002, will satisfy the inventory requirements of the recovery plans and conservation agreement for the nine species. The geology of this area has created conditions that have allowed unique plant species to evolve. The nine target species tend to be restricted to specific geologic formations. Prior to the field season, habitat modeling using geologic formations, elevation, slope, aspect, and plant community associates will be done to predict potential habitat for each species. This information is overlain with known populations, and areas are selected for field surveys. This inventory information will be used to develop monitoring and habitat management protocols. Monitoring will also be an interagency effort with locations throughout the range and in places appropriate to answer the specific questions for each species.
