DescriptionAs described in Chapter 1.1 (Dumroese, this synthesis, The Northeastern California Plateaus Bioregion Science Synthesis: Background, Rationale, and Scope), the Lassen and Modoc National Forests (hereafter the Lassen and the Modoc) share dry pine forestland that was not addressed by two prior science syntheses: Science Synthesis to Support Socioecological Resilience in the Sierra Nevada and Southern Cascade Range (hereafter, Sierra Nevada Science Synthesis; Long and others 2014) and Synthesis of Science to Inform Land Management within the Northwest Forest Plan Area (hereafter Northwest Forest Plan Science Synthesis; Spies et al. 2018). These previous syntheses concentrated on biodiversity and species, such as fisher (Martes pennanti), Pacific marten (Martes caurina), and spotted owl (Strix occidentalis), associated with dense, closed-canopy forests, for example, late-successional and old-growth Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) and western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla) forests.
