Tonto National Forest Land and Resource Management Plan: Management Indicator Species Status Report
The purpose of this report is to summarize current knowledge of population and habitat trends for species identified as management indicator species (MIS) for the Tonto National Forest.

This is a dynamic document, subject to change as new inventory, monitoring, and habitat information is acquired and evaluated during the life of the Tonto National Forest Plan (Forest Plan, LMP).
