Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Designation of Critical Habitat for Ivesia webberi
Document Number: 2013-18583
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-08-02
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), propose to designate critical habitat for the Ivesia webberi (Webber's ivesia) under the Endangered Species Act (Act). In total, approximately 2,011 acres (814 hectares) in Plumas, Lassen, and Sierra Counties in northeastern California and Washoe and Douglas Counties in northwestern Nevada fall within the boundaries of the proposed critical habitat designation. If we finalize this rule as proposed, it would extend the Act's protections to this species' critical habitat. The effect of this regulation is to designate critical habitat for Ivesia webberi under the Act.
Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; 12-Month Finding and Candidate Removal for Potentilla basaltica
Document Number: 2013-18579
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-08-02
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce a 12-month finding on a petition to list the plant Potentilla basaltica (Soldier Meadow cinquefoil) as an endangered or threatened species. After review of the best available scientific information, we find that listing Potentilla basaltica as an endangered or threatened species under the Endangered Species Act (Act) is no longer warranted, and, therefore, we are removing this species from the candidate list. We propose to list the plant Ivesia webberi (Webber's ivesia) as a threatened species under the Act. If finalized, the effect of this regulation would be to add Ivesia webberi to the List of Endangered and Threatened Plants and extend the Act's protections to this species. Elsewhere in today's Federal Register, we propose to designate critical habitat under the Act for Ivesia webberi.
