View synthesis. This synthesis contains 14 chapters that cover fire and forests, machinery, erosion processes, water yield and quality, soil and riparian impacts, aquatic and landscape effects, and predictive tools and procedures. These […]
Most species in ecosystems that evolved with fire appear to be resilient to one or few out-of-season prescribed burn(s). However, a variable fire regime including prescribed burns at different times of the year may alleviate the potential for undesired changes and maximize biodiversity.
This document synthesizes existing knowledge on wildlife responses to fire and fire surrogate treatments presented in a management-relevant format.
View guide. This guide is based on vegetation and fuels data collected by Sagebrush Steppe Treatment Evaluation Project (SageSTEP) researchers at study sites in six states throughout the Great Basin for two […]
View field guide. This field guide is designed to help identify some of the common noxious and invasive weed species that are currently threatening Utah and have been identified on Utah’s state weed list.
View field guide. This field guide provides substantial evidence that pinon-juniper woodlands have experienced major expansion in their distribution since the late 1800s by encroaching into surrounding landscapes once dominated by shrubs and […]
View article. This study investigated downy brome and seeded species responses to variable rates of imazapic in two plant communities (salt desert shrub and Wyoming big sagebrush). Overall, imazapic was useful for helping […]
