    Description

    The Coronado National Forest (CNF) is the primary public land management agency for the United States’ portion of the Madrean Archipelago. The region has a large diversity of amphibians and reptiles, with approximately 110 native species occurring on the CNF. Management of the CNF’s herpetofauna is regulated primarily by environmental laws and policies. Sixteen taxa are variously listed as threatened, endangered, sensitive, and management indicators; potential effects to these taxa must be considered before habitat-disturbing projects can be implemented.
