Suburban development has limited the range of many rare species . a listed species and designated critical habitats. The Services advise the Agencies and applicants on how to avoid adversely impacting these species and habitats, and, where appropriate, the Services provide incidental take statements that allow take of threatened or endangered species that is incidental to an otherwise legal activity. Endangered and Threatened Species Habitat. National forests provide habitat for one-third of all federally listed threatened or endangered species. Soil Stabilization. Trees reduce the effects of erosion caused by water and wind. Flood Control. Forests reduce floods, minimizing sediment, nitrates and phosphorus runoff into critical waterways.   Nearly 50 nationally threatened animal and plant species are believed to have had at least 80% of the area in which they live affected by bushfire, a .

New Caledonia, an archipelago located km east of Australia, is a biodiversity hotspot (Myers et al., , Mittermeier et al., ).It contains indigenous vascular species, of which % are endemic, one of the highest endemism rates in the world (Morat et al., ).New Caledonia is renowned for its rich endemic conifer flora, with 45 species in the families. Page 8 - NMFS/FWS CONSULTATION HANDBOOK at xv. is not likely to adversely affect — "the appropriate conclusion when effects on listed species are expected to be discountable, insignificant, or completely beneficial. Beneficial effects are contemporaneous positive effects without any adverse effects to the species. Insignificant effects relate to the size of the impact and should never reach.
