Dirt goes downhill: Are we making better post-wildfire erosion control treatment decisions?

February 17 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PST
Webinar, video, audio icon

Webinar recording. Major concerns after wildfires are the increased runoff and erosion due to loss of the protective forest floor layer, loss of water storage, and creation of water repellent soil conditions. To reduce the potential postfire erosion and flooding, various postfire mitigation treatments are commonly used on highly erodible areas when downstream values-at-risk are high. We have developed numerous online soil erosion prediction tools to allow for better post-fire land management decision-making. We have validated our model predictions with…

Tree regeneration following wildfires in ponderosa pine forests

February 24 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PST
USFS RMRS logo

Webinar registration. Ponderosa pine forests of the western United States have been experiencing an increase in wildfire activity in recent decades, highlighting a need to understand how they will regenerate post-fire. We synthesize results from a recent project that examined post-fire tree regeneration in ponderosa pine forests of Arizona, Colorado, Wyoming, and South Dakota, and how regeneration was affected by a wide range of abiotic and biotic factors. Our results should help managers better predict post-fire regeneration outcomes for recent…

Linking research and management to improve native plant restoration in NV

February 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PST
Society for Ecological Restoration logo

Webinar registration. Description: Native plant diversity is the hallmark of a healthy ecosystem. In Nevada, our native plant communities are threatened by the accelerated invasion of non-native species, altered fire regimes, grazing, drought, and climate change. Slowing and reversing this largescale conversion requires coordinated efforts between researchers and land managers, working collaboratively to identify the most promising seed sources for restoring disturbed and invaded sites. The Nevada Native Seed Partnership is a group of state, federal, university, and nonprofit partners…

Rangeland Analysis Platform: Integrating production and economics into area-wide planning

February 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PST
Grassland landscape

Webinar join link. Description: Rangelands produce ecosystem services that not only support biodiversity and wildlife, but also sustain livestock operations and rural economies. Woody encroachment is a threat to rangeland productivity, but its impact is often overlooked due to its slow pace and the positive public perception of trees. The Rangeland Analysis Platform (RAP) is an innovative online tool that combines current and historical satellite imagery with thousands of on-the-ground vegetation measurements to facilitate an exploration of trends in western…
