Here we define the Sierra Nevada Foothills as more or less coinciding with the Ponderosa Pine-dominated forests on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Elevations of this zone vary, depending on the latitude:
  • NORTH: 1200-5500 feet
  • CENTRAL: 2000-6500 feet
  • SOUTH: 2500-9000 feet

Note that Jim studied mostly between 2600-4500 feet in elevation, so species appearing only above and below that were not encountered. For example, just below Jim's elevation Blue Oak was abundant, but Jim never saw a single Blue Oak tree during his hikes.
