    Monitoring Notes
    System monitoring: data will be collected on existing populations of covered species and their habitats to identify data gaps and research questions that relate to the successful implementation of the conservation plan. Species research: based on the results of system monitoring, targeted species research would be identified and implemented as part of assuring the success of the habitat-creation components of the conservation plan. Restoration research: effective technologies and practices to create the habitats for the listed species will be identified. Post-development monitoring: once habitats are created, evaluation of the progress toward suitable habitat for the covered species, and use of the created habitats by covered species, is an important component to define success of the conservation plan.
