SageSTEP News: Issue 29- PJ encroachment & modeling climate change

View newsletter.

In this issue:

  • Hydrologic function and resistance to erosion generally increase where treatments enhance grass, forb, and litter cover in the interspaces between trees and shrubs.
  • Scientists from Utah State University have tapped into an innovative method to model how sagebrush responds to climate change, partly inspired by the robust data available from the SageSTEP project.
