Projects Posted on: August 07, 2019
Tree-ring based fire histories from Utah and Nevada reveal multi-century fire patterns for quaking aspen, mountain sagebrush and Great Basin bristlecone pine communities.

Where you stand depends on where you sit: Qualitative inquiry into notions of fire adaptation

Publications Posted on: October 04, 2017
Wildfire and the threat it poses to society represents an example of the complex, dynamic relationship between social and ecological systems. Increasingly, wildfire adaptation is posited as a pathway to shift the approach to fire from a suppression paradigm that seeks to control fire to a paradigm that focuses on “living with” and “adapting to” wildfire.

Great Basin bristlecone pine (Pinus longaeva) climate change and wildfire vulnerability assessment and multi-scale genetic structure analysis

Projects Posted on: April 16, 2015
Variation in composition, structure,  recruitment history, and genetic heterozygosity are being assessed for Great Basin bristlecone pine stands across the full geographic and ecological range of distribution.

Patterns and processes: Monitoring and understanding plant diversity in frequently burned longleaf pine landscapes

Projects Posted on: April 13, 2015
Longleaf pine ecosystems are remarkably rich in plant species and represent the dominant upland forest type in several southeastern military bases. We are coupling a series of field experiments with data mining exercises to help managers monitor the impact of various activities on the understory plant community.
