Final critical habitat units for Phacelia submutica (DeBeque phacelia): We delineated critical habitat areas by creating minimum convex polygons around each population and added a 100 meter buffer to account for indirect effects of threats. These polygon boundaries were modified to exclude unsuitable habitat as defined by a potential habitat model (CNHP 2005). For additional information, refer to 77 FR 48368 (August 13, 2012).

Access Constraints Use Constraints: The GIS files and their associated coordinates are not the legal source for determining the critical habitat boundaries of species described in this dataset, but are used to identify areas which contain the physical and biological features essential to the conservation of the species or areas otherwise determined to be essential. Inherent in any dataset used to develop graphical representations, are limitations of accuracy as determined, among others, the source, scale and resolution of the data. While the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service makes every effort to represent the critical habitat shown with 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 these 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. These data are to be used only in the context of the definition and purpose of critical habitat. This primarily relates to Section 7 consultation under the Endangered Species Act. These data may be used for planning and land management purposes., Access Constraints: None
