The SNAMP science teams are studying two existing USDA Forest Service forest management projects: Last Chance in the north and Sugar Pine in the south. For more information on the forests where these sites are located, follow these links to their web sites. We've also added some information for related projects.
CA Fisher Working Group
The California Fisher Working Group was created to share current information among interested parties to foster communication and collaboration, with the goal of maintaining healthy, viable fisher populations in California.
USFWS Yreka Fish and Wildlife Office
The Yreka Fish and Wildlife Office (Yreka FWO) is one of four U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service offices that works to protect and restore healthy populations of fish and wildlife and their habitats in the Klamath River Basin.
Tahoe National Forest
The Tahoe National Forest is home to the Last Chance site, our northern study area for SNAMP.
Sierra National Forest
The Sierra National Forest is home to the Sugar Pine site, our southern study area for the SNAMP project.
Berkeley's Center for Fire Research and Outreach
The mission of the Center for Fire Research and Outreach is to develop and disseminate science-based solutions to wildfire-related challenges.
Berkeley's Center for Forestry
The Mission of the Center for Forestry is to sustain forested ecosystems through scientific inquiry. Our approach is comprehensive. We seek to create and disseminate knowledge concerning ecosystem processes, human interactions and value systems, and restoration and operational management practices.
Kings River Experimental Watershed
The Kings River Experimental Watershed (KREW) is a watershed-level, integrated ecosystem project for headwater streams in the Sierra Nevada. KREW is part of the larger Kings River Project which is working to develop forest management techniques for sustainable forest ecosystems in the Sierra Nevada.
Plumas/Lassen Study on Defensible Fuel Profile Zones
This research project focuses on the effects of fuel treatments on forest structure, composition, understory microclimate, and succession in ponderosa pine, mixed conifer, and east-side pine forests within the Plumas and Lassen National Forests. The study plan can be found at this website.
Southern Sierra Nevada Fisher Assessment
This project by the Conservation Biology Institute is designed to create a scientifically credible set of habitat maps and estimates of fisher population size and distribution in the southern Sierra Nevada based on current conditions. Then, using spatial modeling methods, the project will assess how fisher habitat and populations are likely to change in the future under a range of alternative scenarios.
Sagehen Field Station
Sagehen Creek Field Station & the Sagehen Experimental Forest are research and teaching facilities of the University of California at Berkeley's Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, the Berkeley Natural History Museums the California Biodiversity Center, & the U.C. Natural Reserve System. Past research projects include the fire behavior SPLAT study conducted by Saah, Battles, Stephens and Roller. More information on this project can be found at the Sagehen website.
SNAMP Scientist Websites
Here you can find links to the personal webpages of several SNAMP scientists, where you can access past publications written by these scientists.
Sierra Nevada Research Institute
The mission of the Sierra Nevada Research Institute is to discover and disseminate new knowledge that contributes to sustaining natural resources and promoting social well being in the San Joaquin Valley and Sierra Nevada regions of California, and related regions worldwide, through integrated research in the natural, social, and engineering sciences.
California Spotted Owl Information Repository
The California Spotted Owl (CSO) information repository was created by UC Cooperative Extension as a place to gather information and resources on CSO. Information is posted from a variety of sources.
Pacific Fisher Information Repository
The Pacific Fisher information repository was created by UC Cooperative Extension as a place to gather information and resources on the Pacific Fisher. Information is posted from a variety of sources.
