Purpose

These data were collected in order to document bird, mammal, amphibian, and reptile species using Camp Adair at some point in their life cycles. In September 1997, the Environmental Branch of the Oregon Military Department contacted the U.S. Geological Survey, Biological Resources Division, Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science Center to help address provisions of the Sykes Act which require management of natural resources on military land holdings in coordination with federal and state agencies. The U.S. Department of Defense listed management of natural resources as a requirement in its "Measure of Merit" mandate. The Oregon Military Department has its own mission statement regarding stewardship and management of natural resources on training sites in the state. Requirements of this mission statement include maintaining biodiversity, and initiation of biological monitoring. Prior to the development of monitoring protocols at Camp Adair Military Training Area (Camp Adair), a baseline inventory of floral and faunal resources was required. This project was initiated to address the need for inventory and distribution information of wildlife species on the training site.
