Abstract:
This thesis integrates wildlife management and biology, urban residential development, and the hydrology of desert watercourses. Literature is surveyed within each area and information is applied to the issue of wildlife conservation in urbanizing areas of Eastern Pima County. It is recognized that some natural wildlife habitats and wildlife species are valued by urban residents. Valuable areas of wildlife habitat are being lose due to conventional residential development strategies. This paper discusses the impact of typical residential development on native Southwestern wildlife species and habitat. Alternative development design guidelines are proposed which would provide viable wildlife habitat within developed areas. Design guidelines which are presented in this paper are applicable to low elevation arid areas in the Southwest where developers are seeking to integrate natural wildlife habitat within residential areas.
