The Sierra Nevada Ecosystem Project is an assessment of the Sierra Nevada ecoregion which was requested by Congress in 1992. Along with a scientific review of late-successional forests, key watersheds, and significant natural areas on federal lands of the Sierra Nevada ecoregion, SNEP also broadly evaluates an entire set of Sierra Nevada ecosystems, including their social, economic, and ecological components. The overall goal of the Sierra Nevada Ecosystem Project was to provide an accurate, multidimensional ecosystem assessment such that key structural components and functional processes could be identified and adequately described to enable the management of these systems at sustainable levels into the future.
