In this short webinar, RMRS research fisheries biologists Dan Isaak and Mike Young talked about the eDNAtlas foundation, development, and new updates; provided a live update of the tool; and took questions and feedback. 
Grazing cattle.
Fuelcasting is a new program that provides projections of expected fuel conditions this grazing season. It is an important component of the Rangeland Production Monitoring System. During the webinar, RMRS scientist Matt Reeves provided an overview of the system, demonstrated how to download and use the data, and discussed the 2020 fuel outlook with a focus on hotspots.
