The locations of vernal pools are greatly varied; they may occur in low areas of forests, vegetated wetlands, or open fields (9). Appropriate conservation and impact assessment of California vernal pools varies immensely, based not only on pool biology and ecology but also on the diversity of human influences on pools throughout the state.
