This manuscript discusses field sampling, data analysis and comparisons of various models as predictors of wildlife occupancy for specific vegetation desired conditions, thereby fulfilling the objectives of the project. The project demonstrated that multiple geospatial datasets and assessment methods can be used to derive indicators associated with Tahoe's healthy vegetation and hazardous fuels desired condition, even when funding is constrained.
