This report provides preliminary comments and recommendations of the Independent Scientific Review Panel (ISRP) and Peer Review Groups on projects submitted for Fiscal Year 2002 funding in the Mountain Columbia Province. It provides project sponsors and the public an opportunity to respond to ISRP concerns before the ISRP makes its final recommendation to the Council on April 6, 2001. This report also provides information to the Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Authority for its use in project prioritization.
The Mountain Columbia review is the third conducted under the new province review process. The ISRP continues to support this new approach.
