    Description

    The Great Basin Research and Management Project was initiated in 1994 by the USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station’s Ecology, Paleoecology, and Restoration of Great Basin Watersheds Project to address the problems of stream incision and riparian ecosystem degradation in central Nevada. It is a highly interdisciplinary project that is being conducted in cooperation with the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. The project’s focus is unique in that it is examining the linkages between the watershed, riparian corridor, and riparian ecosystem scales, and is focusing on both the mid to late Holocene (last 5,000 years) and the Recent Period (last 100 years). Major objectives include examining the effects of climate change and natural and anthropogenic disturbance on the structure and functioning of watersheds and ecosystems, evaluating methods and criteria for determining the effects of both disturbance and management activities, and developing methods for restoring or maintaining watershed and riparian ecosystem integrity.
