"There are a zillion habitat guidelines that have been written," he said. 
"But they're pretty darn site specific." 
    Effective habitat management, experts said, needs to recognize the social

resource development.

from the same problems that plague other wildlife species -- human encroachment 
and development, habitat changes, predators, diseases and climatic changes such 
as drought and severe winters.
