    Monitoring Notes
    The 2005 calendar year annual report indicated that no ABB were trapped. Relative abundance of the ABB has declined in the HCP area since implementation. Similar declines, however, have been documented elsewhere in the region outside the HCP area. Weather (rainfall, temperature) appears to be a factor, which is the subject of ongoing research.
    Additional Notes
    A 5-year review of ABB monitoring data is underway, to assess ABB trend, the effects of forest management, and the design of future monitoring and research as required by the plan and ITP.
