Applicant: Dr. Richard L. Mayden, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, 
Alabama, TE042764-0

    The applicant requests authorization to take (capture, hold 
temporarily, identify, anesthetize with clover oil, take small fin 
clippings, and photograph) from each of the fifteen sampling 
populations a maximum of ten Conasauga logperch (Percina jenkinsi) and 
ten Roanoke logperch (Percina rex). Samples are for the purpose of 
studying mitochondrial DNA sequences to assess genetic variability and 
viability of four imperiled fish species whose ranges occur on National 
Forest Land in the southeast United States. The purposed activities 
will take place in the following states: Virginia, Tennessee, and 

Applicant: Melissa Brooks, Auburn University, Auburn, Alabama, 

    The applicant requests authorization to remove and reduce to 
possession two plants and fifty seeds from ten sites of Trillium 
reliquum (Relict Trillium) to determine the diversity of pollinators, 
the distance that pollinators travel, and the success of these 
pollinators versus hand pollination. The proposed activities will take 
place in Lee, Bullock, and Henry Counties, Alabama; Clay, Lee, Early, 
Talbot, and Columbia Counties, Georgia; and Aiken and Edgefield 
Counties, Kentucky.

nestlings, mark nests) Interior Least Tern (Sterna antillarum 
athalassos) to determine the distribution and abundance on the Arkansas 
River, describe the physical and habitat features of the colony sites, 
estimate the accuracy/reliability of aerial surveys, provide an 
estimate of the variability in abundance of potential colony sites over 
a two-year period, provide a precise estimate of reproductive success, 
identify important predators responsible for losses of eggs and chicks, 
and provide an estimate of the relative importance of natural and human 
influences on the abundance and distribution on the Arkansas River. The 
proposed activities will take place on the Arkansas River, from Pine
