Adaptive management implications
This project will provide the data and analysis necessary to make regional decisions regarding the soundness of the biological objectives of the wildlife mitigation program. This will serve as the foundation for the adaptive management approach.

Section 4. Purpose and methods

Specific measureable objectives
This project will provide a standardized technique for monitoring and evaluating the wildlife portion of the Fish and Wildlife Program. It will contribute to standardizing of the monitoring and evaluating the terrestrial components of watershed projects.

Opportunities for cooperation
This project will lead to standardized techniques that will be used by all project implementors. Because of this it is likely that there will be sharing of such things as computer software and hardware and some measuring devices.
