    Description

    Piñon-juniper vegetation types, including juniper woodland and savannah, piñon-juniper, and piñon woodland, cover approximately 40 million ha in the western United States, where they provide ecosystem services, wildlife habitat, and cultural and aesthetic value (Romme et al. 2009). These ecosystems are also the sites of oil and gas activities, grazing, and urban development and are impacted by changing climate and wildfire. The realization that piñon-juniper ecosystems are being lost and degraded by human activities and changing climate (Cole et al. 2008, Williams et al. 2010, Clifford et al. 2011, McDowell et al. 2016) has stimulated interest in management of these habitats for wildlife. The goal of the 2016 symposium, Piñon-juniper Habitats: Status and Management for Wildlife, was to bring together information on the management of piñon-juniper ecosystems for the wildlife that depend on them.
