Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

These data identify the areas (in general) of critical habitat designated for the arroyo toad. NOTE: THIS DATA SET INCLUDES APPROXIMATELY 900 ACRES OF LAND INADVERTENTLY OMMITTED FROM THE MAPS AND LEGAL DESCRIPTIONS FOR UNITS 8, 10, 11, AND 14 IN THE FINAL RULE PUBLISHED ON FEBRUARY 9, 2011 (76FR7246). UNTIL A CORRECTION OF THE FINAL RULE IS PUBLISHED THE BOUNDARIES OF UNITS 8, 10, 11 AND 14 SHOULD BE CONSIDERED PROVISIONAL. These data reflect revisions to the proposal published in the Federal Register on October 13, 2009 (74FR52614). Critical habitat for the species consists of approximately 98,000 acres among 22 units from San Diego County northward to Santa Barbara County, California. Descriptions of the units and all area calculations contained in the rule published in the Federal Register on February 9, 2011 (76FR7246) are consistent with the boundaries contained in this data set.

Access Constraints Use Constraints: The GIS files and their associated coordinates are not to be used as a legal source for determining the critical habitat boundaries of the species. Inherent in any data set used to develop graphical representations, are limitations of accuracy as determined by, among others, the source, scale and resolution of the data. While the Service makes every effort to represent the critical habitat shown with this data as completely and accurately as possible (given existing time and resource constraints), the USFWS gives no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the accuracy, reliability, or completeness of these data. In addition, the USFWS shall not be held liable for improper or incorrect use of the data described and/or contained herein. Graphical representations provided by the use of this data do not represent a legal description of the critical habitat boundary. The user is referred to the critical habitat textual description in the appropriate final rule for this species as published in the Federal Register.Please check sources, scale, accuracy, currentness and other available information. Please confirm that you are using the most recent copy of both data and metadata. Acknowledgement of the USFWS would be appreciated., Access Constraints: None
