List of figures

  • Figure 1. Critical habitat for Mexican Mosquito-fern is represented by the shaded yellow polygons where the criteria and methodology set out in Section 1.1 are met. The detailed polygons show the area containing critical habitat at Population #1: Little Fort, north of Mount Loveway (88.3 ha) and Population #3: Mount Loveway, 1.8 km southeast of (3.8 ha). The 1 km x 1 km UTM grid overlay shown on this figure is part of a standardized national grid system that is used to indicate the general geographic area within which critical habitat is found in Canada. Areas outside of the shaded yellow polygons do not contain critical habitat.
  • Figure 2. Critical habitat for Mexican Mosquito-fern is represented by the shaded yellow polygons where the criteria and methodology set out in Section 1.1 are met. The detailed polygons show the area containing critical habitat at Population #2: Little Fort, south of (20.1 ha). The 1 km x 1 km UTM grid overlay shown on this figure is part of a standardized national grid system that is used to indicate the general geographic area within which critical habitat is found in Canada. Areas outside of the shaded yellow polygons do not contain critical habitat.
  • Figure 3. Critical habitat for Mexican Mosquito-fern is represented by the shaded yellow polygons where the criteria and methodology set out in Section 1.1 are met. The detailed polygon shows the area containing critical habitat at Population #5: Chinook Creek (0.8 ha). The 1 km x 1 km UTM grid overlay shown on this figure is part of a standardized national grid system that is used to indicate the general geographic area within which critical habitat is found in Canada. Areas outside of the shaded yellow polygons do not contain critical habitat.
  • Figure 4. Critical habitat for Mexican Mosquito-fern is represented by the shaded yellow polygons where the criteria and methodology set out in Section 1.1 are met. The detailed polygons show the area containing critical habitat at Population #6: Tappen, Shuswap Lake (5.2 ha). The 1 km x 1 km UTM grid overlay shown on this figure is part of a standardized national grid system that is used to indicate the general geographic area within which critical habitat is found in Canada. Areas outside of the shaded yellow polygons do not contain critical habitat.
  • Figure 5. Critical habitat for Mexican Mosquito-fern is represented by the shaded yellow polygons where the criteria and methodology set out in Section 1.1 are met. The detailed polygons show the area containing critical habitat at Population #7: Salmon Arm (31.1 ha). The 1 km x 1 km UTM grid overlay shown on this figure is part of a standardized national grid system that is used to indicate the general geographic area within which critical habitat is found in Canada. Areas outside of the shaded yellow polygons do not contain critical habitat.
  • Figure 6. Critical habitat for Mexican Mosquito-fern is represented by the shaded yellow polygons where the criteria and methodology set out in Section 1.1 are met. The detailed polygons show the area containing critical habitat at Population #9: Cambie, 2.7 km west of (5.2 ha). The 1 km x 1 km UTM grid overlay shown on this figure is part of a standardized national grid system that is used to indicate the general geographic area within which critical habitat is found in Canada. Areas outside of the shaded yellow polygons do not contain critical habitat.
  • Figure 7. Critical habitat for Mexican Mosquito-fern is represented by the shaded yellow polygons where the criteria and methodology set out in Section 1.1 are met. The detailed polygons show the area containing critical habitat at Population #10: Vernon (10.9 ha). The 1 km x 1 km UTM grid overlay shown on this figure is part of a standardized national grid system that is used to indicate the general geographic area within which critical habitat is found in Canada. Areas outside of the shaded yellow polygons do not contain critical habitat.
