This report is designed to provide the Florida Department of Transportation with information and recommendations to avoid or mitigate adverse impacts to threatened or endangered species. Although it principally addresses impacts of highway facilities it should also be helpful to others involved in planning land development projects. The species selected for specific discussion have been or potentially will be impacted by highway construction, operation or maintenance procedures, and all recommendations are based on current knowledge of each species' life history, habitat needs and vulnerability to disturbance. Also, included is a listing of endangered and threatened species which could be encountered in each Florida county and that should be considered in land-use planning. There are 4 basic types of mitigation that can be applicable in road construction projects: 1) spatial mitigation, 2) temporal mitigation, 3) operational mitigation and 4) replacement mitigation. Those 4 techniques are the most commonly used in the species recommendations, the one(s) being applied dependent upon both the involved species' needs and site-specific conditions.
