    Description

    National forests in the Sierra Nevada and Southern Cascade bioregions have begun to review and revise their land and resource management plans (LRMPs). The three most southern national forests of the Sierra Nevada (Inyo, Sequoia, and Sierra) were selected to be the lead forests for the Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region (Region 5) and are among the first of the Nation's 155 national forests to update their plans. The new planning rule requires the forests to consider the best available science and encourages a more active role for research in plan development. To help meet this requirement, the Region 5 leadership asked the Pacific Southwest Research Station (PSW) to develop a synthesis of relevant science that has become available since the development of the existing LRMPs.
