Natural Resource Inventories
When the Inventory & Monitoring Program started, a set of 12 basic inventories was identified to help us better understand and manage park natural resources. These inventories were point-in-time surveys to learn about the location or condition of certain resources, including the presence, distribution, or status of plants and animals, air, water, soils, landforms, and climate.
Inventories conducted by the Sierra Nevada Network provided a starting point for long-term monitoring and management. Between 2000 and 2007, we conducted species inventories that targeted gaps in information for vascular plants and vertebrates. See the Inventory Reports page to learn more about our inventory results.
Species ListsNPSpecies is an on-line database of plant and animal lists for national parks. Use the search tool below to retrieve lists of vascular plants and vertebrates for Devils Postpile National Monument, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, and Yosemite National Park. Please note that species lists are dynamic and National Park Service scientists continue to update them.
