Land and resource management issues in the Sierra Nevada are becoming increasingly complex and controversial. The objective of this conference was to provide a synoptic overview of the current state of scientific knowledge related to these issues. We tied recent scientific findings to applications of its use in land management and policy development/revisions. The specific objectives of this symposium were:
  • Highlight ecological research and monitoring activities ongoing in the Sierra Nevada,
  • Provide access for all interested parties to information on Sierran research activities, databases, and web sites
  • Identify new research needs and priorities of organizations, particularly those interested in managing resources or lands in the Sierra
  • Explore opportunities to expand/leverage research opportunities in the Sierra Nevada, identify collaborative opportunities, including student involvement, interagency involvement, intern involvement.
