DescriptionThis chapter provides local planners and policymakers with information on the diversity and abundance of oak woodland wildlife, wildlife habitat needs, and how local planning activities can influence wildlife abundance and diversity. Federal and state laws, particularly the federal and California Endangered Species Act and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), require local governments to include wildlife needs in land-use planning. Increasingly, local governments must account for the impacts of their activities on wildlife. The future of oak woodland wildlife depends on how we plan and manage oak woodlands in the face of increasing pressure from recreation and development.
