Abstract : This workbook provides a mechanism for analysis of human demographic impacts on fish and wildlife due to large-scale energy developments in Western States. It focuses on impacts related to land use conversions and the accompanying reduction in quantity or quality of habitat and on impacts related to population growth and their demands or impacts on fish and wildlife resources. The workbook suggests procedures for projecting impacts on fish and wildlife resources, provides guidance on monetary valuation of resources potentially lost, and describes mitigation or enhancement measures.
