the policies and practices described in this Disclaimer Notice.
Disclaimer of Liability
The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish (NMDGF) shall not be held
liable for any improper or incorrect use of the information contained herein and assumes no responsibility
for the use of the information. In no event shall NMDGF be liable for any direct, indirect, or incidental
damages arising in any way out of the use of this service. These data have been processed successfully
on computers of NMDGF and no warranty, expressed or implied, is made by NMDGF regarding the use of these
data on any other system, nor does the fact of distribution constitute or imply any such warranty. In no
event shall NMDGF have any liability whatsoever for payment of any consequential, incidental, indirect,
special, or tort damages of any kind, including, but not limited to, any loss of profits arising out of
use of or reliance on the biological data or arising out of the delivery, installation, operation, or
support by NMDGF. This disclaimer of liability applies to any damages or injury, including but not limited
to those caused by any failure of performance, error, omission, defect, delay in operation or transmission,
computer virus, alteration or use of record.
One who uses information available for use on this web site assumes the
risk of using or relying on information contained herein.
Disclaimer of Accuracy of Data
While NMDGF attempts to provide the most accurate information possible
this biological data "as is" and makes no guarantee or warranty concerning the accuracy, adequacy,
completeness, reliability, or usefulness of any information contained in the BISON-M. NMDGF further makes
no warranties, either expressed or implied as to any other matter whatsoever, including, without
limitation, the condition of the product, or its fitness for any particular purpose. The burden for
determining fitness for use lies entirely with the user. Information in BISON-M comes from a variety of
different sources, with varying levels of certainty. For example, county occurrences may be based upon
specimen records from within the county, reports that appear reliable but are not confirmed with physical
evidence, or inferred occurrences based upon observations from adjacent and similar areas. Users should
review the sources of data for BISON-M, which can be found by clicking on the blue number that follows each
specific piece of information presented within BISON-M, and jumping to the full citation information for
the references of interest.
Information is added and changed periodically, and data may become
out-of-date quickly. It is recommended that the user not let a significant period of time elapse between
obtaining and using the information. NMDGF denies responsibility for the conduct of its users
Disclaimer of Applicability of Data
The BISON-M is constantly being updated and expanded. Information
contained in the BISON-M does not constitute an official opinion by the NMDGF, nor will it, by itself,
meet any regulatory requirements. The information in the BISON-M does not replace the need for conducting
field work. The information must be used in consultation with appropriate federal, state, and local
officials. The absence of data confirming the occurrence of a species within a geographic area does
not constitute a negative declaration.
Disclaimer of Spatial Habitat Information
Maps of predicted animal
habitat distributions are provided courtesy of the Gap
Analysis Project. These models are based upon relationships among resources and
conditions that support species occurrence and persistence. Modeled habitat
distributions have not been calibrated using the known range of all species
occurrences. Animal habitat modeling maps should not be used in place of
site-specific determinations of species occurrence, and should not be used in
lieu of field surveys.
For a full description of the
animal habitat modeling, see the Gap Analysis
