Recovery Strategy for the Tiger Salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum) (Great Lakes Population) in Canada (Proposed)


3. Critical Habitat

3.1 Identification of the Species' Critical Habitat

Critical habitat for the Great Lakes population of the Tiger Salamander in Canada cannot be defined at this time, due to the uncertainty surrounding the existence of this population in Canada, and the lack of habitat and location specificity associated with the only accepted record. This latter fact makes it difficult, if not impossible, to assess the subspecies' and populations' habitat needs in Canada, should individuals, or a population, ever have been present here. In addition, the habitat needs of Eastern Tiger Salamanders in the United States (see Section 1.4.1) may, or may not, apply in Canada.
