ROCK AND SOIL At its foundation, the Sierra Nevada is an enormous deposit of granitic rock whose exposed slopes are readily visible at the crest of the range. The Sierra Nevada ecoregion harbors one of the most diverse temperate conifer forests on Earth displaying an extraordinary range of habitat types and supporting many unusual species.

Fifty percent of California s estimated 7, species of vascular plants occur in the Sierra Nevada, with Sierra endemics and rare species (CWWR ).

Moody1, JoAnn Fites-Kaufman2, and Scott L. Stephens1*, 1Division of Ecosystem Sciences, Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management, University of California, Mulford Hall, Berkeley, CA Sierra Nevada snowpack is an important water source for California.

It acts as a natural reservoir that holds water in frozen form until it gradually melts over spring and summer, flowing into manmade reservoirs and conveyance systems. Past studies have shown that in the future, global warming is expected to shrink the Sierra snowpack.

They appear to affect the pace at which the Sierra Nevada is wearing down due to the action of water, wind and biological processes. The results will help efforts to learn how mountain forests are responding to climate-linked changes in temperature and precipitation.

Sierra Nevada ecosystem services. The forests of the Sierra Nevada deliver important benefits to the citizens of California and the rest of the world. With the extensive exploitation that began with the gold rush, the Sierra Nevada has provided considerable timber, feed for grazing animals, and irrigation water for local agriculture.

Under the auspices of the Sierra Nevada Ecosystem Project (SNEP) we have adapted a cumulative watershed effects accounting system to model forest stand response to fire and timber harvest activities.
