While meadows cover less than one percent of the Sierra Nevada, these ecosystems are of high ecological importance given their role in carbon and nitrogen storage, mediation of surface water flows, groundwater recharge, sediment filtration, and as refugia for numerous species. Understanding how – and where – to conserve and restore meadow ecosystems is a critical management question facing US Forest Service (USFS) and other land managers in the Sierra Nevada. The information and tools generated from this project are intended to significantly increase understanding of meadow responses to climate, associated changes in hydrology, and to develop conservation and restoration priorities that are strongly aligned with...
This insert into the March 2014 Estuary news offers snapshots of how seven CA LCC projects have been laying the foundations for lasting cooperative conservation partnerships. The CA LCC has been striving to ensure that its projects complete research and make it accessible to resource managers – through publications, maps, the Climate Commons web site, workshops, webinars, and more. The CA LCC also completed a five-year strategic plan and science management framework in 2013.
The Sacramento Valley of California is a site of international importance for shorebirds despite having lost >90% of its historic wetlands. Currently both managed wetlands and flooded agriculture are important habitats for shorebird populations, but the extent of flooded agriculture may be declining in early winter when shorebirds need to acquire resources postmigration to survive winter. We employed long-term shorebird monitoring data to evaluate factors influencing abundance and species richness of shorebirds using the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge Complex in early winter (November–December) between 2000 and 2009. We quantified the effect of local attributes of the wetland management unit (wetland type,...
