Species at Risk on DOD Installations
Species at Risk on DOD Installations > Buffer Analysis
On many military installations there are concerns regarding encroachment of non-compatible land uses in surrounding areas that may adversely impact DOD training missions. At the same time, many of these land uses may hinder or restrict the continued persistence and survival of species at risk. We therefore analyzed species at risk presence within a two-kilometer 'buffer' area immediately surrounding DOD installations.
Twenty-four installations have five or more at-risk species
occurring in their buffer areas (Figure 6). Many of these species, especially
in Hawaii, are candidates for listing. In the buffer of one installation alone
— Schofield Barracks Military Reservation in Hawaii — there are
15 Federal candidate species, 16 critically imperiled (G1/T1) species, and 9
imperiled (G2/T2) species.
