Event description

Description

Rick Miller, Professor Emeritus of Range and Fire Ecology, OSU; Cheri Howell, Ecologist, USFS Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest; and Brad Schultz, Extension Educator, UNCE, will discuss tools to rapidly assess resilience to disturbance (ability of a treatment area to recover), resistance to invasive annuals, predict successional pathways, and determine the need and suitability for seeding on potential vegetation treatment areas and areas burned by wildfire. These discussions will be based on two field guides, A field guide for selecting the most appropriate treatment in sagebrush and piñon-juniper ecosystems in the Great Basin (View PDF) and A field guide for rapid assessment of post-wildfire recovery in sagebrush and piñon-juniper ecosystems in the Great Basin (View PDF).

We will meet in Winnemucca (location to be determined) and travel to the Santa Rosa Mountains where we'll make three to four stops along an elevation gradient to discuss site evaluation, resistance and recovery potential, and treatment options in different soil temperature and moisture regimes.

Please bring a bag lunch.
