Description:

This report presents stream data on the Humboldt River Basin in northern Nevada using the R-EMAP Program. Water is of primary importance to both the economy and the ecology of the region. Many of the waters of Nevada have previously received relatively little attention in regards to systematic bioassessment and this study is intended to address a lack of adequate historical baseline data for the region.

Purpose/Objective:

The results of determining ecological condition in this area of Nevada will help land managers make good decisions concerning land use practices. This report is the first in a series of reports and articles that will describe the use of properily functioning condition to make good land use decisions. Nevada Tribes will benefit from this practice.
