Threats. Section 4(a)(1) of the ESA lists five factors that must be considered when determining if a species should be listed as threatened or endangered. A species may be listed due to one or more of the following factors:
Threats. Active and potential threats to the Lower Yellowstone Service Area include physical alterations of streams, flow alteration, water quality impairment, dams, mining, forestry, and invasive species. Additionally, recent developments in energy-related industries (primarily coal mining and coal bed natural gas extraction) pose significant threats to water quality and physical availability of water. The ILF program will emphasize mitigation project selection that maximizes opportunities to directly address these threats and their resultant impacts. Because many threats represent landscape-scale changes in land use, the ILF program will emphasize projects that can address threats at this scale within the stream corridors and wetland complexes of this Service Area. Threat abatement strategies will include primarily remediation of physical alterations and revegetation, with significant emphasis on protection of restored and intact areas aquatic resource sites. Specific active and potential threats within this Service Area include the following:  Physical Alteration: Physical alteration refers to direct physical alterations of streams, wetlands, riparian areas and other aquatic resources. Physical alterations, both permitted and not, are extensive and typically poorly documented. Land use activities associated with agricultural practices, irrigation diversions, and transportation and other infrastructure have directly impacted the physical habitat and processes supporting streams and wetlands throughout the Service Area o Rip-rap and other streambank stabilization structures are listed as conservation concerns in the Powder River Ecotype (FWP, 2005), as well as along the Yellowstone River associated with railways.  Xxxxxx (2008) found that stream bank armoring was likely degrading the quality of pallid xxxxxxxx habitat (Xxxxxx et al, 2008)  BNSF Railway Company routinely impacts the Yellowstone River and its tributaries through physical impacts to the streams and rivers, primarily through installation of riprap and replacement of ballast to protect and maintain rail infrastructure.  Modifications and degradation of stream channels as a result of construction or land management are listed as conservation concerns in the Powder River Ecotype (FWP, 2005).  Flow alteration: Flow alterations that cause dewatering or unnatural fluctuations that decrease the quantity or quality of essential habitats are listed as conservation concerns in the Powder River Ecotype (FWP...
Threats. In the past, harvesting by humans has affected the Northern Royal Albatrosses on the Chatham Islands and though now illegal, small-scale harvesting of chicks is still thought to occur. The current population decrease of this population however is thought to be mainly a result of nesting habitat degradation following severe storms in the 1980s. The effects of climatic changes and perturbations, which result in changes to the nesting habitat either through drying out or storm damage, are likely to have a significant effect on the status of this species for many years to come. The mainland colony of Northern Royal Albatrosses at Taiaroa Head (Dunedin, New Zealand) has increased, assisted by control of predators and human interference, and despite the incidence of flystrike which is responsible for some mortality of hatchlings. Fishing operations also affect Northern Royal Albatrosses. These birds are caught on longlines in the waters off southern Australia, and their extensive oceanic distribution exposes them to interactions with an array of longline operations. Fishing-related mortality at sea, whilst perhaps not the primary threat to this species, serves to hasten the decrease of the population.
Threats. This section describes the threats and their impact on the population at a global and, where appropriate, biogeographical population level. Where data 1 xxxx://xx.xxxxxx.xx/environment/nature/conservation/wildbirds/hunting/key_concepts_en.htm 2 Information from hunters bag statistics schemes is being collected through the ARTEMIS project, coordinated by FACE, and it can be used as a source of such data: xxxx://xxx.xxxxxxx-xxxx.xx/ are available, it can also include an overview and relative importance at a country level, for those countries supporting the bulk of the population. Threats should be listed if they are known (or have the realistic potential) to cause population decline. Only those threats for which specific actions will be developed should be described. Threats of more global character (eg climate change, avian influenza and others) if important, should be mentioned in the threats overview paragraph. However, the action plan has a limited role to play in adressing global large-scale trends and actions for them should not be included in the document. Threats should be presented in descending order of priority according to the magnitude of their impact on the population. Hence, their listing in the document is a result of the threat prioritisation process that took part during the development of the action plan, and especially during the action planning workshop. The table of threat included in Annex 1 should be compiled prior to the SSAP workshop, based on current knowledge collected from the literature and the contributors’ input. At the workshop, the threats listed should then be analysed for cause and effect using a participatory problem-tree analysis that will focus the action plan on the main threats. Common sense and best available information should guide the decision- making process when ranking threats. Ideally, threats should be ranked using a quantitative system describing the speed and the magnitude of the caused (likely) decline. However, if precise data on the threat magnitude are not readily available, a decision should be taken based on best available data and expert judgement. Ensuring that the ranking is consistent and correct in relative terms is the important point. • Critical: a factor causing or likely to cause very rapid declines and/or extinction; • High: a factor causing or likely to cause rapid decline leading to depletion; • Medium: a factor causing or likely to cause relatively slow, but significant, declines; • Low: ...
Threats. The success of any conservation or recovery program depends on eliminating or reducing the impact of activities that threaten the species’ existence. In the proposed rule to list the least chub as an endangered species (60 FR 50518), the Service identified and described pertinent problems and threats facing the least chub. These threats were identified based on the criteria for Federal listing as required by Section 4(a)(1) of the ESA. The following discussion summarizes the significant threats to least chub that will be addressed by conservation actions described in this Strategy. Present or Threatened Destruction, Modification, or Curtailment Habitat loss and degradation have been indicated as major causes of the declines in least chub populations and distribution (Holden et al.1974; Xxxxxxx 1989; Xxxxx 1990). Although no studies have been made of the springs occupied by least chub, numerous other reports link livestock trampling and grazing with fish habitat degradation (water quality, vegetation type, habitat morphology, etc.) in streams and springs (Duff 1977; May and Somes 1981; Xxxxxx et al. 1989, Fleischner 1994). The majority of occupied and unoccupied habitats are currently not protected against grazing practices. Water levels have been identified as important in the life history of least chub (Xxxxxxx 1981; Xxxxx and Xxxxxx 1990). Interest has been expressed in water development and mining activities within the Snake Valley (Xxxxx and Xxxxxx 2005). These activities could significantly lower the water table, possibly drying up or lowering the water level in springs and marshes populated by least chub. These springs are dependent on underground water sources that flow from the Deep Creek Mountains to the west side of the valley. Several water development activities (e.g. irrigation practices) have also altered the habitat of least chub along the Wasatch Front. Most springs along the Wasatch Front have been significantly altered as a result of diversion, capping, and pumping activities. Predation, Competition, and Disease Xxxxxxx (1989) considered least chub to be "constantly threatened" by the introduction and presence of nonnative species. Surveys of spring complexes indicate that where nonnative fishes were introduced, few if any least chub remain (Xxxxxxxxx 1985). Introduced game fishes, including largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides), rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), common carp (Cyprinus xxxxxx), and xxxxx xxxxx (Salvelinus fontinalis) ...
