Rapid Assessment

  • Rapid Assessment (pdf 837kb, posted 7/9/2015)

The rapid assessment for jumping mouse critical habitat (CH) was developed collaboratively between the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS), USFS, New Mexico State University, New Mexico State University-Range Improvement Task Force, and the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension.  The objective of the assessment was to measure riparian components. This would help determine whether or not the Primary Constituent Elements (PCEs) of jumping mouse critical habitat exist at the measured location. The assessment protocol was applied during the growing season of 2015 within proposed CH on the Apache-Sitgreaves, Lincoln and Santa Fe National Forests. The PCEs the assessment focused on included: the presence of water, saturated soils, and tall dense riparian vegetation.  The results of the assessment should provide a snapshot in time of the condition of the jumping mouse habitat sampled.
