Rapid Assessment field guide cover

A field guide for rapid assessment of post-wildfire recovery potential in sagebrush and pinon-juniper ecosystems

View field guide. This field guide provides a framework for rapidly evaluating post-fire resilience to disturbance, or recovery potential, and resistance to invasive annual grasses, and for determining the need and suitability...

Treatment selecting field guide cover

A field guide for selecting the most appropriate treatment in sagebrush and piñon-juniper ecosystems in the Great Basin: Evaluating resilience to disturbance and resistance to invasive annual grasses, and predicting vegetation response

View field guide. This field guide identifies seven primary components that largely determine resilience to disturbance, as well as resistance to invasive grasses and plant succession following treatment of areas of concern....
