    Description

    In this issue of the GSD Update, we take a look back at selected studies of the Grassland, Shrubland and Desert Ecosystem Science Program (GSD) that depict its strengths and focus areas. Significant results of recent research and science applications by GSD scientists are highlighted. We identify where program research lines up with the strategic priorities of the USDA Forest Service and the Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS). In particular, we spotlight accomplishments in: Understanding and controlling invasive plant species; Assessing changes in ecosystems and landscapes caused by disturbances and stressors such as fire, climate change and their interactions; Evaluating methods to monitor and recover rare native species and biodiversity; Developing approaches for restoring ecosystems and landscapes to improve their resiliency.
