2016 Resilience and Resistance Field Workshop Reports

Evaluating Resilience and Resistance to Invasive Annuals following Wildfire and Vegetation Treatments - May and June 2016

Rick Miller, Professor Emeritus of Range and Fire Ecology, and local hosts discussed 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. 

Discussions were based on two field guides:

  • A field guide for selecting the most appropriate treatment in sagebrush and piñon-juniper ecosystems in the Great Basin
  • Rapid assessment of post-wildfire recovery in sagebrush and piñon-juniper ecosystems in the Great Basin
