Research Guidance to Address the Needs of Land Managers


Forward: Several federal, state, and private organizations with responsibility for land use and resource management in Southern California are cooperating to protect coastal sage scrub areas through the development and implementation of Natural Community Conservation Planning (NCCP) programs in San Diego, Orange, and Riverside counties. The representatives of the state and federal agencies charged with oversight of the NCCP appointed a Science Research Committee to coordinate research and related land management activities. This committee in turn selected an ad hoc Core Group of representative researchers and managers from differing regions, sectors, and perspectives to advise them regarding improved methods for developing and disseminating ecological information needed for planning and management. The following draft report was prepared by the NCCP Core Group.
