Endangered Species Pdf

in the preamble to the Endangered. Species Act of , recognizing that endangered and threatened species of wildlife and plants “are of esthetic, ecological. trend, size and structure, and geographic range. Species listed as Critically. Endangered, Endangered or Vulnerable are collectively described as threatened . ENDANGERED. SPECIES. It is estimated that there could be as many as 14 million species of plants and animals in the world, although only around 2 million.

In recent years, it has become apparent that human activities are causing the loss of biological diversity at an increasing rate: the current rate of extinctions appears to be among the highest in the fossil record. Habitat alteration and degradation are probably the most severe effects humans have on other species today. Because of recent controversies and because the act is being considered for reauthorization, it has received much attention recently, which led to the request for this study by the National Research Council NRC. It prohibited interstate commerce of animals killed in violation of state game laws and stated that any dead animals taken across use the print version of this publication as the authoritative version for attribution. The Black Bass Act of Ch. It also amended and strengthened earlier acts. That act prohibited the taking or importation of any marine mammal, with exceptions available under certain complex conditions. It also provided for a determination of "depleted" status; depleted stocks or species were afforded stronger protection than others. The act defines three crucial categories: "endangered" species, ''threatened" species, and "critical" habitats.

The third possible scenario is that of a specialist clinician interacting with a subspecialist radiologist of the same subspecialty. One example is a neuroradiologist interacting with a neurologist or neurosurgeon.

In this scenario, both the radiologist and the specialist physician are in tune with the subtle nuances prompting the involvement of the clinical specialist. Again, the product of this interaction is better quality patient care.

Furthermore, with the availability of teleradiology, subspecialist clinicians can demand prompt subspecialist radiologist interpretations. Again, these radiologist-clinician interactive scenarios raise the question of the relevance of general radiologists and, therefore, species endangerment. I doubt it, because we general diagnostic radiologists will adapt.

We are not yet an endangered species.

In my discourse above, I mean no disrespect to general diagnostic radiologists, because fundamentally, I am one. Nor do I intend that all diagnostic radiologists abandon their generalness for subspecialization. In fact, of the more than 33, radiologists in the United States, fewer than half spend the majority of their time in one subspecialty [2].

General diagnostic radiologists bring a great deal to medical imaging and patient care. Our broad understanding of the usefulness of all imaging modalities and our understanding of diseases and conditions that cross subspecialty boundaries can enhance patient care. Small and rural medical practice settings require general diagnostic radiologists for the overall medical practices to function. These practice settings are not large enough to sustain subspecialsts in all radiology or all clinical areas.

General diagnostic radiologists require tools to assist us in optimizing our skills to fulfill the requests of our clinical colleagues.

Rather than allow our clinical colleagues to drive the requirements for the subspecialist interpretation of exami- nations, we must proactively offer this service. Radiologists functioning as general diagnostic radiologists can identify subspecialty radiologists with whom they can consult when needed.

By developing alliances between practices, required subspecialty interpretive skills can be shared.

A local general diagnostic radiologist or a subspecialist radiologist working outside of his or her area of subspecialty expertise can collaborate with these subspecialist colleagues to enhance his or her radiology practice and enhance patient care.

This product has been available in the past and has recently been rejuvenated. I suggest that everyone consider using them.

To maintain the viability of our specialty and to remain relevant to patient care, we must provide the services our patients and our clinical colleagues demand. Increasing subspecialization is one method to do this, and adaptation by general diagnostic radiologists is another.

Charles Darwin in his research concluded that it is not the strongest of the species that survive but those that are most able to adapt and change. To survive, general diagnostic radiologists must be the adaptable ones.

We have tools at hand to assist us in this adaptation. Once a species is listed as endangered or threatened in accordance with the ESA, it is sheltered under the act's protective umbrella, an impressive and far-reaching array of provisions Greenwalt, Critical habitat must be designated unless overriding concerns for the species' conservation prevail Section 4 of the ESA.

Recovery plans designed to bring the species to the point where it no longer needs the act's protections are required unless they will not promote the conservation of the species Section 4.

Funds for habitat acquisition and cooperative state programs are authorized sections 5 and 6. Federal agencies must ensure that their actions are not likely to jeopardize the continued existence of listed species nor adversely modify their critical habitats Section 7 a 2.

They are also required to use their authorities to promote endangered species conservation Section 7 a 1. Taking endangered species and, by regulation, threatened species, is prohibited with certain exceptions Section 9.

For example, listed plants are protected only on federal lands unless their taking on nonfederal lands violates state law. The act and regulations that implement it define taking very broadly to cover any activities causing harm to listed species, including habitat destruction if it interferes with behavior patterns essential to species survival and reproduction however, the extent of this last provision will be decided by the Supreme Court, which has agreed to review a case on the matter1.

Limited taking may be allowed under federal permits for research purposes. Taking that occurs incidentally to otherwise lawful actions of federal agencies is legal if the federal agency or its permittee complies with terms and conditions found in the biological opinion issued under Section 7 a 2. Unless nonfederal actions trigger a Section 7 consultation, listed species may be taken only under authority of a Section 10 a 1 B incidental take permit.

To obtain the permit, an applicant must submit a habitat conservation plan, reduce and avoid take within feasible limits, mitigate for any unavoidable take, show capability to fund the plan's conservation measures, and meet any other conditions imposed by the secretary of Interior or of Commerce.

The Section 7 prohibition of any federal action likely to jeopardize the continued existence of an endangered or threatened species or to destroy or adversely modify its critical habitat is the source of much of the act's power.

That dam would have flooded all the known habitat of the newly discovered snail darter Percina tanasi. Hill, U. A current controversy involves the northern subspecies of the spotted owl Strix occidentalis caurina and the timber industry in the Pacific Northwest.

Another has the potential to intensify if more than stocks of Pacific salmon Oncorhynchus species see NRC, and the widespread but rare bull trout Salvelinus confluentus proposed for listing beome listed as endangered or threatened. As of January , four stocks of Pacific salmon were listed as endangered in the Pacific Northwest and California.

These fishes and their habitats are used for various economic, social, and recreational activities that adversely affect their survival in the western United States.

As human activities continue to affect species populations and their habitats, two major questions arise concerning the ESA. First, is the act soundly based in science as an effective method of protecting endangered species and their habitats? Congress intended the act to provide a mechanism for reversing the endangered or threatened status of species; that is why the processes of "delisting" species and upgrading them from endangered to threatened are in the act.

The second question concerns the desired public policy with respect to protecting endangered species and their habitats, i. This report focuses on the first question.

To address the first question, we return to the objectives of the ESA as described in the act. Section 2 b states that the act's purposes are "to provide a means whereby the ecosystems upon which endangered species and threatened species depend may be conserved, to provide a program for the conservation of such endangered species and threatened species, and to take such steps as may be appropriate to achieve the purposes of the treaties and conventions set forth in subsection a of this section.

After receiving funding from the U. The committee's membership see Appendix C includes expertise in ecology; systematics; population genetics; wildlife management; risk and decision analysis; the legal, legislative, and administrative history of the Endangered Species Act; economics; and the implementation of the ESA from public and private perspectives.

The committee's statement of task is based very closely on the letter of request from the three members of Congress Appendix A.

An Endangered Species?

The committee was asked to review how the term species has been used to implement the ESA, and what taxonomic units would best serve the purposes of the act.

The committee was asked how frequent or severe conflicting conservation needs are when more than one species in a geographic area are listed as endangered or threatened under the ESA, and to make recommendations to resolve these conflicts.

The committee was asked to evaluate the role of habitat protection in the conservation of species and to review the relationship between habitat-protection and other requirements of the act. The committee was asked to review the role of recovery planning under the act and to consider how recovery planning could better contribute to the purposes of the act.
