 EDIT  Origin: Native to NM.
 EDIT Taxa are native to New Mexico but their distribution within the state may have been altered by human activities resulting in introduction of some populations in areas where the species did not historically occur. This includes populations that were established for conservation of native species to prevent their extirpation from the state, and some cases of where introduced populations later became extirpated. The result is a distribution of a species native to New Mexico that includes or included both native and introduced populations. Origin: Native to NM, distribution altered by human activities
 EDIT This taxa is native to New Mexico. Some or all of its populations may have been created by re-establishment. Some of the populations may also have created via introductions.Origin: Native, re-established
 EDIT This species/subspecies described within the account is native to New Mexico; However, this population (or subspecies) has been introduced to this portion of New Mexico, where it did not originally occur.Origin: Native, introduced population/subspecies

 EDIT Living trees with decay contain amounts of decayed wood that allow them to function as snags. Dead tops, large dead branches, broken tops, and wounded areas provided useful wildlife habitat.

Pacific NW Research Station.Birthing/Egg Laying Site: Live trees with decay
 EDIT  Birthing/Egg Laying Site: Snag
 EDIT Hollow trees are trees that have decay in the heartwood so advanced that it leaves a hollow core. Large diameter trees form hollow chambers most useful to wildlife. Hollow trees are known to be used by: Northern Flickers, Black bears, bats, American Martens, Busy-tailed Woodrats, and other small mammals as dens, roosts, nests, forage sites, and shelter.
