Database And Literature Resources

Databases and literature searches can be valuable resources to collect documents and occurrences of habitats and plants. From these resources, a list of potential or known wildlife species, habitats, plants and other information can be created and used for a certain project or multiple projects. It may be helpful to obtain as much information and existing data as possible before conducting field reconnaissance surveys. For example, supplemental survey protocols and habitat management information can be obtained in addition to what is provided in this Guide.
