If we could power the nation with one solar field in Arizona, Only if the lizards say we can: The strong push for renewable energy in this country has greatly increased demand forSouthwestern desert sites that are highly suitable for solar and wind energy production. Theproposed area for the Quartzsite Solar Energy Project will encompass about 1400 acres, about 11acres of which is sand dune, with most of the remainder on potential sand-sheet habitats for theMohave Fringe-toed Lizard. The agencies have deemed the Quartzsite Project to be impactingthe Dunes Wildlife Management Area and surrounding habitat although little is known of therelationship between the use of the habitat as a system by the Mohave Fringe-toed Lizard. Thisstudy plan was developed in order to develop a better understanding of the extent to whichMohave Fringe-toed Lizards occur in these sand-sheet habitats and the ecological importance oflizards in these extensive dune-periphery habitats to the regional persistence of the species.(i.e.,to what extent do these “sand-sheet” lizardsreproduce and recruit into the general population?http://www.blm.gov/pgdata/etc/medialib/blm/az/pdfs/energy/qs...IP
