Proposed research projects should conduct new research and/or synthesize previous research to: (1) establish the potential range of key climate conditions relevant to ecological processes and biological communities in the Tahoe basin; (2) identify which ecological processes and biological communities in the Tahoe Basin are most vulnerable to the effects of climate change; (3) evaluate the effects of Basin-specific adaptation strategies and treatments to conserve particular ecological processes and biological communities; and/or (4) guide the temporal and spatial design of forest treatments to avoid unacceptable ecological impacts while promoting long-term desired conditions (particularly in
