USFS GMUG Assessment II - Broad Scale Aquatic, Riparian, and Wetland Ecological Assessments


Project Dates: 29 July 2003 - 31 October 2005

Funding Sponsor: US Forest Service

Principal Investigator: Jeff Hamerlinck

Project Summary:

This project is a regional approach to develop and coordinate species conservation and ecological sustainability in the Rocky Mountain Region of the U.S. Forest Service. An ecological driver concept was developed that looks at wetland and riparian communities, sediment dynamics, fishery resources, and aquatic production at different scales to evaluate watershed sensitivity and importance. Anthropogenic influences are also addressed by this team of scientists and resource specialists from the U.S. Forest Service, the University of Wyoming and Colorado State University.
