To see a copy of the entire ICR submitted to OMB, go to http://www.reginfo.gov (Information Collection Review, Currently under Review). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Abstract: Beginning in 1997, the U.S. Geological Survey has collected voluntary data regarding amphibian malformations. Sightings are reported via an electronic form. The form is sent to the USGS National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) Emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:14 Mar 25, 2011 Jkt 223001 program, which manages the North American Reporting Center for Amphibian Malformations (NARCAM). Each malformation occurrence submitted is carefully reviewed by trained professional herpetologists for quality and accuracy. Data associated with the validated reports, including species, malformation type, and geospatial information, are made accessible to the public via the NARCAM Web site. Information may be used by scientists and resource managers within Federal, State, and local agencies, as well as the general public, to identify areas where malformed amphibians have been reported, and the rates of occurrence. The NARCAM dataset is the only publicly available, national dataset on amphibian malformations. We will be requesting OMB approval for an extension of the current form used for the NARCAM data collection efforts. II. Data OMB Control Number: 1028–0056. Title: North American Reporting Center for Amphibian Malformations (NARCAM). Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: General public, individual households, state/local government agencies. Respondent Obligation: Voluntary. Frequency of Collection: On occasion, one-time. Estimated Number Annual Respondents: 300. Annual Burden Hours: 150 hours. We estimate the public reporting burden averages 30 minutes per response.
