Abiotic and biotic influences on Bromus tectoreum invasion and Artemisia tridentata recovery after fire

Publications Posted on: July 18, 2011
Native sagebrush ecosystems in the Great Basin (western USA) are often invaded following fire by exotic Bromus tectorum (cheatgrass), a highly flammable annual grass. Once B. tectorum is established, higher fire frequencies can lead to local extirpation of Artemisia tridentata ssp. vaseyana (mountain big sagebrush) and have cascading effects on sagebrush ecosystems and the species that depend on them.

Landscape scale attributes of elk centers of activity in the central Black Hills of South Dakota

Publications Posted on: October 03, 2006
We researched the environmental attributes (n = 28) associated with elk (n = 50) summer range (1 May 30 Sep) in the central Black Hills of South Dakota, USA, during 1998-2001. We defined high-use areas or centers of activity as landscapes underlying large concentrations of elk locations resulting from the shared fidelity of independently moving animals to specific regions on summer range.
