The California Wildlife Habitat Relationships (CWHR) is an information system for California's Wildlife managed by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW). CWHR contains life history, geographic range maps, habitat relationships, and management information for more than 700 species of amphibians, birds, mammals, and reptiles in California. Available CWHR products include a queriable database program that can be used to develop and compare potential species lists for user-specified locations or habitats in California, species life history information, and geographic range maps for each species. CWHR range maps and habitat distribution maps for each species, which show suitable habitat within each species range, are now available for viewing and download on the CDFW Biogeographic Information and Observation System (BIOS) website. CWHR is currently developing and adding range maps and information for subspecies beginning with Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN), which include listed species and Species of Special Concern.
