Reviews and Recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

ISRP Preliminary Review , ISRP 99-2 Recommendation:
Fund
Date:
Jun 15, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Recommendation: Fund. The ISRP recommends this proposal for a multi-year review cycle, review again at mid-point, perhaps 2002.

Comments: The goals of this project are to restore, protect, and enhance streams so that they may support native salmonid populations at historic levels. Overall, this was a well-written proposal that met the evaluation criteria well. Habitat protection and enhancement are cost-effective approaches to assuring persistence of native species. The land addressed provides habitat for wildlife as well, particularly birds. Presentation of quantified results to date is useful and gives confidence that the on-going work is achieving desired results. The proposal notes direct improvements due to past activities: 5-fold increase in fish density in one creek, increased spawning grovels and stream depth, and stabilization of eroded riparian areas. This project seems to be producing successful habitat improvements and direct benefits to fish, and some casting of the work in an experimental framework (e.g., treated and untreated streams or reaches) and publication of results is desirable. Future proposals should continue to report detailed results of past work. The proposal also is supported well by citations of published research. Reviewers had several other comments and questions: The authors should quantify "historic levels" of Yellowstone cutthroat trout so that a restoration target is identified. How is the effect of water management (that previously affected habitat) being controlled? What is meant by "optimizing" management of land and water use? What factors are considered in optimization decisions?
