RMRS-GTR-304: The Southern Nevada Agency Partnership Science and Research Synthesis: Science to support land management in Southern Nevada - Executive Summary


Citation: Chambers, Jeanne C.; Brooks, Matthew L.; Pendleton, Burton K.; Raish, Carol B., eds. 2013. The Southern Nevada Agency Partnership Science and Research Synthesis: Science to support land management in Southern Nevada - Executive Summary. Gen. Tech. Rep. RMRS-GTR-304. Fort Collins, CO: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station. 79 p.

Abstract: This synthesis provides information related to the Southern Nevada Agency Partnership (SNAP) Science and Research Strategy Goal 1 - to restore, sustain and enhance southern Nevada’s ecosystems - and Goal 2 - to provide for responsible use of southern Nevada’s lands in a manner that preserves heritage resources and promotes an understanding of human interaction with the landscape. The Science and Research Strategy has nine Sub-goals that address the topics of water and water use, fire, invasive species, biological diversity, restoration, cultural resources, historic content, recreation, and science-based management. This synthesis summarizes the state-of-knowledge related to each of these Sub-goals, addresses knowledge gaps, and provides management implications. It builds on previous efforts to develop the necessary scientific understanding for adaptive management of southern Nevada ecosystems.

Keywords: Mojave, Great Basin, anthropogenic disturbance, climate change, invasive species, altered fire regimes, water resources, species of conservation concern, restoration, heritage resources, recreation, ecosystem resilience, science-based management
