Fall 2010 Newsletter: Vol 4. No. 2 - Fisher Team
The SNAMP fisher study is an eight year study initiated in September of 2007 in the Bass Lake Ranger District of the Sierra National Forest. The fisher team research goals include: (1) determining the population paprameters and limiting factors for the Pacific fisher; and (2) evaluating the effects of fuel reduction treatments (SPLATs) on resource use, survival, and population persistence of Pacific fisher. The fisher team has captured and radio collared 66 individual fishers since the start of the study, and is currently monitoring 18 fishers. To learn more about the fisher team research and recent results from their study, please check out the Fall '10 Fisher Newsletter.
