DescriptionThe Great Basin is one of the most imperiled regions in the United States. Sustaining its ecosystems, resources, and human populations requires strong collaborative partnerships among the region's research and management organizations. This GTR is the product of a workshop on "Collaborative Watershed Research and Management in the Great Basin" held in Reno, Nevada, November 28 through 30, 2006. It provides an overview and individual issues papers describing critical research and management issues facing the Great Basin. It also includes summaries of workshop sessions on (1) developing collaborative management and research programs and (2) devising mechanisms for organization and communication.
Co-sponsors of the workshop included the University of Nevada, Reno, Desert Research Institute; Great Basin Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit; Utah State University; Agricultural Research Service; Bureau of Land Management; State of Nevada, Department of Wildlife and Game; USDA Forest Service, Region 4; USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station; and U. S. Geological Survey.
