Endangered Species Act and ńˇýSound ScienceńˇŁ
M. Lynne Corn (au); Kristina Alexander (au); Eugene H. Buck (au)
The adequacy of the science supporting implementation of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) has received considerable congressional attention over the years. Some critics accuse agencies responsible for implementing the ESA of using ńˇýjunk science,ńˇŁ and others counter that decisions that should rest on science are instead being dictated by political concerns. Under the ESA, certain species of plants and animals are listed as either endangered or threatened according to assessments of the risk of their extinction. Once a species is listed, powerful legal tools are available to protect the species and its habitat. Efforts to list, protect, and recover threatened or endangered species under the ESA can be controversial. Some of this controversy stems from the substantive provisions of this law, which can affect the use of both federal and nonfederal lands. This report provides a context for evaluating legislative proposals through examples of how science has been used in selected cases, a discussion of the nature and role of science in general, and its role in the ESA process in particular, together with general and agency information quality requirements and policies, and a review of how the courts have viewed agency use of science. This is a print on demand report.
