The Endangered Species Act and the distinct population segment policy Tatjana Rosen Bard Center for Environmental Policy, Bard College Abstract: The US Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed to delist the Yellowstone grizzly bear (Ursus arctos) as a distinct population segment, pursuant to the 1996 Distinct Population Segment Policy, on grounds that these bears have achieved their recovery goals. In this paper I discuss the Distinct Population Segment Policy and suggest that it does not provide a workable basis for classifying populations for purposes of delisting or down listing decisions, and I review aspects of the Yellowstone grizzly bear delisting decision. Key words: delisting, distinct population segment,endangered Species Act, evolutionarily significant unit, grizzly bear, isolation, significance, Ursus arctos, Yellowstone Ursus 18(1):110–117 (2007)
