Project Description

Produce a draft science plan that includes (i) a comprehensive review of issues important to land management and resource restoration in the Tahoe basin; (ii) identifies key knowledge gaps and uncertainties that are likely to compromise the effectiveness and efficiency of restoration actions; and (iii) proposes research, monitoring, and modeling activities that can be integrated with ongoing management to inform decision-makers and generate a comprehensive and informed adaptive management program. This task constitutes Phase II of the Science Plan and identifies the specific research areas needed by decision-makers.
