Who ever searches on servers as of FWS or .gov and other authorities will
find numerous regulations on a variety of species. There is need for a
handbook on regulations to make public aware of what is prohibited and what
not. Non-lawyers will have difficulties to extract the proper conclusions
from many papers I have found. OK, I am not native speaker but still for
mothertongues the term often are somewhat obscure.
