File or table name: sosea

Theme keywords: Spotted Owl Special Emphasis Areas, sosea, spotted owl

Abstract: SOSEA (SPOTTED OWL SPECIAL EMPHASIS AREAS) means the geographic areas as mapped in Washington State's Forest Practices Rules (WAC 222-16-086). Each delimited SOSEA polygon contains the specified goal for that area to provide for demographic and/or dispersal support as necessary to complement the northern spotted owl protection strategies on federal land within or adjacent to the SOSEA.

FGDC and ESRI Metadata:

Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with green text are defined in the ESRI Profile of the CSDGM. Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.

Description:

Abstract:

SOSEA (SPOTTED OWL SPECIAL EMPHASIS AREAS) means the geographic areas as mapped in Washington State's Forest Practices Rules (WAC 222-16-086).  Each delimited SOSEA polygon contains the specified goal for that area to provide for demographic and/or dispersal support as necessary to complement the northern spotted owl   protection strategies on federal land within or adjacent to the SOSEA.

 

Purpose:

Forest Practices Rules are in place for forest land within a SOSEA boundary. These rules were adopted by the Washington Forest Practices Board for compliance with the Federal Forestry Plan of 1995, 4(d) Rule.

 

Supplemental information:

The boundaries of each delimited SOSEA is derived from the following federal document: 
    "Appendix B: Proposed Special Rule for the Conservation of the Northern Spotted Owl", Dept. of the Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service. 50 CFR Part 17; RIN 1018-AD20. Federal Register/Vol.60, No.33.  2/17/95 Proposed Rules.
