    Description

    Southern Nevada’s unique landscapes and landforms provide habitat for a diversity of plant and wildlife species of conservation concern including many locally and regionally endemic species. The high population density and urbanization of the Las Vegas metropolitan area is the source of many local and regional stressors that affect these species and their habitats: nitrogen deposition; solar and wind energy and water development; recreation, insects and disease; livestock, wild horse, burro, and elk grazing; invasive species; and altered fire regimes. Global stressors also affect these species and include climate change and CO2 enrichment.
