Final Round ISRP Comment:
Fundable acquisition.

Project 199106000 and 199206100 have been merged together by the tribe. The criteria for acquisition of land are now documented in a satisfactory manner including their priority scoring system. The combined projects are fundable in part for acquisitions and for FY07 to complete an assessment of past work. Future funding of the active management part of the budget should be contingent upon a meaningful analysis of the existing data, which should be a relatively easy task for this project. Huge summaries of raw data by location for vegetation, amphibians, mammals and birds were provided, but with no meaningful overall evaluation. What is needed is one or more graphs (or some other form of data summary) that clearly address project objectives, along with some text stating how the project proponents interpret the findings. This simple summary of relevant information should be presented so as to interpret a project's past success and to justify the proposed current direction. Although these two projects appear to have adequate ongoing monitoring, it is not at all clear that they are using the data to help interpret their progress or to develop possible adaptive management strategies.
