The purpose of this modification is to add one additional staff person to the workgroup to support the workload.

This Grant Award is made under the Colorado Plateau Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit (CESU) agreement. The United Stated Bureau of Reclamation participates in the CESU under number 9-FG-81-0143.

Objectives

1. Provide a secure and organized permanent repository for San Juan River fish collections, field notes, and associated data thereby facilitating access to these resources by SJRIP researchers.
2. Insure that all SJRIP species identifications and associated data are verified and correctly represented in the MSB electronic catalog; report discrepancies to SJRIP principal investigators.
3. Georeferenced collection sites for SJRIP collections; maintain license for ArcView and make collection data available to SJRIP researchers in that format.
4. Modification 003 will add staff to the team in order to accomplish the work load.
