Summary

Recognizing Montane Meadows and Quaking Aspen communities are a rare and valuable resource to plant and animal species in the Sierra Nevada, this project represents the beginning of a monitoring strategy for the conservation management of these ecosystems. The projects goals and objectives are to develop an accurate inventory of these systems, including high-resolution mapping and classification of community types, and surveys of selected terrestrial and aquatic animal species which depend on them. Other inventory related products include 360 photography, online survey reports and dynamic maps. In addition, refinements to electronic data collection tools and applications are provided to enhance future assessment programs.
