Abstract or Summary
  • In September 1991, the Bureau of Land Management asked the Secretary of the Interior to convene the Endangered Species Committee. The Bureau wanted permission to proceed with 44 timber sales In Oregon that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had ruled would jeopardize the continued existence of the northern spotted owl. The Secretary convened the Committee. Tom Walsh was appointed to the Committee as Oregon's representative and requested that Brian Greber advise him during the committee process. Before the Committee meeting on May 14, 1992, Greber prepared a summary report of the information deemed important to the Committee's decision. The report Is reproduced here to provide a historic record of Information used by Walsh In his deliberations and to serve as a potential template for future Endangered Species Committee analyses.
