    There are many plant and animal species considered to be threatened, endangered, or of special concern to regulators and the public. Correctly estimating population sizes, relationship to habitats, and potential effects of anthropomorphic activities is crucial to making informed policy and regulatory decisions. Environmental conditions affecting species populations are the limiting factors. Quantifying limiting factors is fundamental to developing policies and practices that are most likely to create the desired future conditions for the species and its habitats.
