Description:This conservation assessment is one of many being produced to support the Species Conservation Project for the Rocky Mountain Region (Region 2), USDA Forest Service (USFS). The kit fox (Vulpes macrotis) is the focus of an assessment because Region 2 lists it as a sensitive species. Within the National Forest System, a sensitive species is a plant or animal whose population viability is identified as a concern by a regional forester because of significant current or predicted downward trends in abundance or significant current or predicted downward trends in habitat capability that would reduce its distribution (FSM 2670.5 (19)). A sensitive species may require special management, so knowledge of its biology and ecology is critical. This introduction defines the goal of the assessment, outlines its scope, and describes the process used in its production.
