Endangered Species Act

A federal law originally intended to protect endangered species on federal land, but expanded to include protections wherever found, including private property.The existence of a protected species on one's land may prevent development or dramatically increase the expenses.This is not considered a condemnation,so there is no government compensation.

The lower CI values indicate that oysters in all of the low-salinity treatments were stressed compared with original field collections, even though the mortality of the experimental population was not observed at the end of the trial.
Input data specifying the proportion of male recruits and the transitions between the 4 different stages (i.e., female-transitional-secondary-dominant) differed among the 3 experimental populations. For the G case, half of the recruits were males ([[rho].sub.1]=0.5; Fig.
