RareFind 3 © Important Notice on the Proper Use of the CNDDB


The CNDDB is constantly being updated and expanded.  It does not constitute an official response from a state agency, it will not in itself meet the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and it does not replace the need for conducting field work.  The information must be used in consultation with appropriate federal, state and local officials.  Absence of data on a species or natural community does not constitute the basis for a negative declaration.


Data Use Guidelines
  • [PDF]  A document answering questions on the appropriate use and display of CNDDB data.
CNDDB Key Facts
  • [PDF]  An important document to read prior to working with the CNDDB data.
