If there are not enough Spotted owl pairs or fisher found, will the SPLATs still be completed and the project continued? If so, how will wildlife be evaluated sufficiently for the Forest Service to apply SPLATs elsewhere in the landscape? Since there already is a SPLAT experiment being designed in Sagehen, how will this design differ, and will the Sagehen experiment include a wildlife component? How can SPLATs be implemented across the landscape currently by the Forest Service until the results of this Adaptive management experiment and the Saghen experiment are known?
