"The U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) (also collectively known as the Services) have received applications from the Board of Trustees of Leland Stanford Junior University (Stanford) for incidental take permits under Section 10(a)(1)(B) of the federal Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA). Stanford has requested authorization for the incidental take of the California tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense), California red-legged frog (Rana draytonii), San Francisco garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis tetrataenia), western pond turtle (Clemmys marmorata), and steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss) on Stanford lands within San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, California. As part of the ITP application process, Stanford prepared a habitat conservation plan (HCP) that specifies, among other things, (i) the impacts likely to result from the taking of the Covered Species and the measures Stanford will undertake to avoid, minimize, and mitigate such impacts, (ii) how the HCP would be funded, and (iii) alternatives to the proposed HCP. The Covered Activities by Stanford that would be included in the permit are ongoing maintenance and operation of Stanford facilities, up to 180 acres of future development on Stanford lands, and implementation of the Conservation Program. The Covered Activities do not include activities that are directly associated with Searsville Dam and Reservoir. The proposed term of the permits is 50 years."--Stanford Digital Repository webstie.

This report outlines the UK Government's views on the main issues raised in the Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA) Evidence Report (an independent analysis funded by UK Government and Devolved Governments), to highlight actions already in place to manage the risks identified in the CCRA, and to outline UK Government plans for the future. This report and the CCRA Evidence Report have been laid before Parliament in line with the requirements of the Climate Change Act 2008 (ISBN 9780105427087). This Government report sets out the main priorities for adaptation in the UK under five key themes, as identified in the CCRA Evidence Report: (i) Natural environment; (ii) Buildings and infrastructure; (iii) Health and wellbeing; (iv) Business and services; (v) Agriculture and forestry. It also describes the policy context in each area. This Report also takes account of the various initiatives and policies on adaptation in place and looks forward to Government plans to develop a National Adaptation Programme to manage major risks, and take advantage of the opportunities, as set out in the CRRA.

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) has been monitoring the health and status of ringed seals (Phoca hispida) in Alaska since 1960 by collecting information and samples from the Alaska Native subsistence harvest. This monitoring program is especially important because agencies are unable to overcome the logistical and sampling constraints necessary to estimate seal abundance in remote, ice covered waters. As such, reliable estimates of ringed seal abundance or population trend are lacking. Retrospective data analyses from this monitoring program allow us to examine how parameters that affect population size and status may vary in time and how current conditions compare with past conditions. Parameters we monitor that are indicative of population health or status include growth rate, body condition, diet, age distribution, sex ratio, age of maturation, and pregnancy rate. Since 2000, ADF&G has also conducted surveys for local knowledge and hunter preferences and analyzed tissue samples for contaminants and disease. All of these collections rely on the cooperation of coastal subsistence communities. Villages that have participated in the sampling program span the region from Hooper Bay in the Bering Sea to Kaktovik in the Beaufort Sea, including islands in the Bering Sea; an area that encompasses most of the range of ringed seals in Alaska
