The Endangered Species Act of 1973 helps conserve plant & animal species facing extinction as well as their habitats. The Dept. of the Interior delegated its responsibility for the Endangered Species Act to the Fish & Wildlife Service, which established an endangered species program (ESP) within its ecological services program to implement the requirements of the act. This is a review of several aspects of the Service's implementation of the endangered species program.

The Endangered Species Act (ESA) of 1973 protects plant and animal species that are either facing extinction or are likely to face extinction in the foreseeable future and protects the ecosystems upon which they depend. It includes provisions for listing species that need protection, designating habitat deemed critical to a species' survival, developing recovery plans, and protecting species against harm. Over the last 10 years, the auditor has reported on many of the major program areas of the ESA -- listing, critical habitat, recovery, and the consultation process by which fed. agencies ensu

Vector-borne diseases are a major health problem in South-East Asia and in other parts of the world. There are about 4,500 mosquito species in existence; species belonging to the Anopheles genus transmit malaria. Combating malaria is part of the Millennium Development Goals, and vector control is a key strategy both regionally and globally. Therefore, the review and dissemination of information on vector species is critically important. Most of the anophelines that are involved in the transmission of malaria in South and South-East Asia have been identified as species complexes. Members of a s
