Relations among cheatgrass-driven fire, climate and sensitive-status birds across the Great Basin
View webinar recording.
This webinar highlights a project examining how projected changes in fire regimes and fire and fuels treatments may affect habitat quality for and probability of occupancy of sensitive-status breeding birds. Statistical change-point analyses will be used to detect any abrupt, nonlinear temporal changes-thresholds-in projected vegetation cover, habitat quality, and occupancy. Detection of ecological thresholds, if they exist, may suggest fuels treatments and restoration actions that will decrease the probability of entering into or remaining within undesirable ecological states. Webinar speakers are: Erica Fleishman, University of California Davis, and Jimi Gragg, Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
