Abstract : Natural habitat remains intact and rare species exist to a remarkable extent on military installations, even in the presence of military training. However, there has been little field research directed at identifying and quantifying possible impacts to threatened and endangered species (TES) from disturbances related to training activities. This research describes known impacts to TES resulting from military training. This research serves as an introduction to the ecological processes that can lead to impacts on sensitive species.
