The Warner Mountains and Surprise Valley mark the transition from the extended Basin and Range province to the unextended Modoc Plateau. This transition zone, in the northwestern corner of the Basin and Range, is relatively diffuse compared to other, more distinct boundaries, such as the Wasatch front in Utah and the eastern Sierran range front.

The Northwestern Great Basin ecoregion is one of the most intact ecosystems in the west as well as a biological hotspot. However, altered fire regimes, invasive species, water scarcity, development and climate change threaten the integrity of this landscape.

Several efforts are ongoing for individual species, specific threats or sub-geographies, and over 60 existing plans and.

However. Plagopterin minnows of Meadow Valley Wash and the Sevier River drainages split m.y. ago. These episodes of connec-tion and isolation sometimes coincide with known climatic shifts. To attribute the most recent of the above divergence estimates to the end of the most recent pluvial period in the Great Basin would require unrealistically high.

The classificatior~ of intermontane-basin landforms presented here was designkd to help locate both soil associations and individual soils in a landscape. It is based on morphogenetic affinities of landforms and on their pliysical scales relative to individual soils.

The province is characterized by numerous north-trending ranges and internally drained basins formed primarily by normal faulting in the Neogene and Quaternary (e.g., Stewart,; Wallace,).A total of ∼ km of extension across the –km Cited by: 5.

While this is relatively minor, the Warner Range and Surprise Valley fault appears to have persisted as the westernmost boundary of Basin and Range extension since its initiation in the mid- to late Miocene.

In contrast, extension has stepped westward over the past 15 Ma further south (e.g., Surpless et al., ).
