Fish distribution in Umpqua National Forest. The cover was built at two locations and by two people. Cottage Grove prepared the Cottage Grove district fish distribution and the Supervisors office prepared the fish distribution for Tiller, North Umpqua, and Diamond Lake districts. The SO then merged the two layers together. The fish distribution layer was developed using the existing stream layer, then identifying those streams and stream breaks for each fish species. The streams that don't have any fish distribution were deleted fom the layer. Arcview was the program used to create the layer utilizing heads-up digitizing to identify the breaks. This cover was built at a map scale of 1:24000.
The following are interview transcripts from the project "Assessing Climate Change Effects on Natural and Cultural Resources of Significance to Northwest Tribes". Interviews were conducted by Sammantha Hatfield during 2014 on the impact of climate change to members of local indigenous communities in the Pacific Northwest. Transcripts were redacted to prevent release of sensitive information.

The dataset compares the change in seasonal constraints on photosynthesis and growth during 2000-2009 with conditions from 1950-75. The following layers are included: 1) Change in annual GPP 2) Maximum LAI 3) Spring frost stress 4) Summer water stress and 5) Fall water stress 6) Summer vpd stress.
Wenatchee Extent - These are an offshoot of the Series layer and a predecessor to the Plant Association Group (PAG) layer. Potential Natural Vegetation (PNV) refers to the plant community that would be established if all successional sequences were completed without human interference under the present environmental conditions, including those created by humans. PNV is a useful tool to stratify the landscape into basic units of land capability. PNV maps should, by design, be rather stable. They may, however, be refined or updated as better information becomes available. In comparison, the concept of existing vegetation is based on the composition and arrangement of plants that exist today. Existing vegetation is...
This feature class shows the location and spatial extent of botanical areas, research natural areas, and wilderness areas.
Wenatchee National Forest Suitable Timberlands. This layer was developed for timber suitability analysis for the Wenatchee Forest Plan. Although it is named for suitability, it was really mostly used as a resource to show areas "unsuitable" for timber management. Very important historical reference.
Land Use Designations. Updated with 8o. Exterior boundary updated with the May 2007 updated NSA exterior boundary. Resulted in some small polygons where the old boundary GIS did not capture. Requires a planner to look at and approve - process started late 2007, unknown completion date. Other areas that require FS and planner verification have been brough to the attention of GC and FS early 2007. Updated June 30th by fixing odd or incorrect attributes. Zoned as GMA but managed as SMA? If the forest service purchases land that has gone GMA, they will manage like SMA. If a private owner has land in the SMA that goes GMA, it is managed GMA. Last updated 11.09.2009 with Congressional 2000 and Plan Review 2004 changes.
