ISRP final recommendation: Fundable


The response states the criteria that are used to prioritize purchases and these criteria should provide useful evaluation of possible acquisitions. Thus, the acquisition component of the project is justified. The response to the request to provide evaluation of project success is not adequate, as it does not address the project's ultimate biological objectives. Instead, it simply provides a task completion summary of amount of mitigation in terms of HU acquired relative to assessed HU losses. This does not provide relevant information for the ISRP's scientific review charge. See comments under the companion O&M project 199800300.
