Shrubland ecosystem genetics and biodiversity : proceedings : Provo, UT, June 13-15, 2000 by E. Durant McArthur( )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 53 papers in this proceedings include a section celebrating the 25-year anniversary of the Shrub Sciences Laboratory (4 papers), three sections devoted to themes, genetics, and biodiversity (12 papers), disturbance ecology and biodiversity (14 papers), ecophysiology (13 papers), community ecology (9 papers), and field trip section (1 paper). The anniversary session papers emphasized the productivity and history of the Shrub Sciences Laboratory, 100 years of genetics, plant materials development for wildland shrub ecosystems, and current challenges in management and research in wildland shrub ecosystems. The papers in each of the thematic science sessions were centered on wildland shrub ecosystems. The field trip featured the genetics and ecology of chenopod shrublands of east-central Utah. The papers were presented at the 11th Wildland Shrub Symposium: Shrubland Ecosystem Genetics and Biodiversity held at the Brigham Young University Conference Center, Provo, UT, June 13-15, 2000
Proceedings, shrubland ecotones : Ephraim, UT, August 12-14, 1998 by E. Durant McArthur( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 51 papers in this proceedings include an introductory keynote paper on ecotones and hybrid zones and a final paper describing the mid-symposium field trip as well as collections of papers on ecotones and hybrid zones (15), population biology (6), community ecology (19), and community rehabilitation and restoration (9). All of the papers focus on wildland shrub ecosystems; 14 of the papers deal with one aspect or another of sagebrush (subgenus Tridentatae of Artemisia) ecosystems. The field trip consisted of descriptions of biology, ecology, and geology of a big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) hybrid zone between two subspecies (A. tridentata ssp. tridentata and A. t. ssp. vaseyana) in Salt Creek Canyon, Wasatch Mountains, Uinta National Forest, Utah, and the ecotonal or clinal vegetation gradient of the Great Basin Experimental Range, Manti-La Sal National Forest, Utah, together with its historical significance. The papers were presented at the 10th Wildland Shrub Symposium: Shrubland Ecotones, at Snow College, Ephraim, UT, August 12-14, 1998."
Plant-herbivore interactions in Atriplex : current state of knowledge by Andrés F Cibils( )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Atriplex is a widespread genus with species dispersed over almost all continents. Many taxa within this genus perform outstandingly under a variety of stress conditions and are often an important source of forage for herbivores. Such attributes have drawn the attention of many researchers who have conducted extensive studies on Atriplex across a wide variety of environments and management scenarios. This report reviews much of the literature dealing with aspects of the biology of Atriplex from an animal-plant interaction perspective."
Fourwing saltbush (Atriplex canescens) seed transfer zones by Stewart C Sanderson( )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Atriplex canescens (Pursh.) Nutt. is the most widespread species of perennial Atriplex in North America. Throughout its distributional range, A. canescens shows considerable between-population variation. Some of this variation may be due to phenotypic plasticity but most of it appears to be genetic. Mutations, polyploidy, introgressive hybridization, and segregation from interspecific hybrids all appear to have contributed to its extensive heritable variation. Polyploidy is unusually common with numerous chromosome races (2x, 4x, 6x, 8x, 10x, 12x, 14x, 20x). Fourwing saltbush is widely used for reclamation plantings. Proper identification is important to the utilization of fourwing saltbush in such plantings. While many of the races have been formally named as varieties, others have not. Even though differentiated by ploidy, chemical constituents, geographic distribution, and statistical distribution of morphological characters, races may lack sufficient diagnostic characters to allow facile identification, at least in the herbarium. Rather than combining unnamed races under those that do have a taxonomic name, it seems better at present not to use the formal infraspecific categories in treating the fourwing saltbushes, but to consider them all as races. Seed transfer should be within the geographical distribution limits of each race. The most common race, by far, is Occidentalis. We recommend four overlapping seed transfer zones for race Occidentalis in the United States: (1) Northern Intermountain, (2) Western Great Plains, (3) Colorado Plateau/Great Basin/Columbia Basin, and (4) Southwestern. Source seed populations from near the planting sites generally do well; and populations generally perform better when moved south and/or to lower elevations than when moved north and/or up in elevation."
Beginnings of range management : an anthology of the Sampson-Ellison photo plots (1913 to 2003) and a short history of the Great Basin Experiment Station by David A Prevedel( )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

High-elevation watersheds on the Wasatch Plateau in central Utah were severely overgrazed in the late 1800s, resulting in catastrophic flooding and mudflows through adjacent communities. Affected citizens petitioned the Federal government to establish a Forest Reserve (1902), and the Manti National Forest was established by the Transfer Act of 1905. The Great Basin Station, a forerunner of the Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station, was created in 1911 within this area to study the influence of rangeland vegetation on erosion and floods. This publication contains a collection of 12 recurring sets of photographs that started in 1913 on these depleted high-elevation rangelands. The sites were rephotographed in the 1940s, 1972, 1990, and 2003. It is also a tribute to two men who pioneered the science of range managementArthur W. Sampson and Lincoln Ellison. As Directors of the Experiment Station, they initiated and maintained the early photo sites and study plots. It was with these photograph records and study plots that many of the interpretations and guidelines for the management of high-elevation watersheds were developed. After 90 years, plant community changes on these high-elevation watersheds has led to a vegetation composition significantly different than the original condition. New plant communities have reached thresholds where yearly vegetative composition appears to be climate driven. Many of the higher elevation areas remain in unsatisfactory watershed health with active erosion
Great Basin Experimental Range : annotated bibliography by E. Durant McArthur( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This annotated bibliography documents the research that has been conducted on the Great Basin Experimental Range (GBER, also known as the Utah Experiment Station, Great Basin Station, the Great Basin Branch Experiment Station, Great Basin Experimental Center, and other similar name variants) over the 102 years of its existence. Entries were drawn from the original abstracts or summaries when those were included in the original document. When no abstract or summary was provided the authors produced summaries for inclusion. One hundred and ninety-one works are included and indexed by date, type of publication, subject matter, and author. The works are divided into the following categories (some of which are interrelated): Community Ecology, Disturbance (Grazing) Ecology, Fire Ecology, Historical and Site Descriptions, Livestock Management, Mammal Ecology, Methodology, Plant Autoecology, Plant Physiology, Plant Taxonomy or Status, Range Ecology and Range Management, Research Needs Assessment, Revegetation and Restoration Ecology, Site Evaluation and Species Performance, Soil Biology and Ecology, and Watershed Ecology. One hundred and three authors are included among who are some eminent scientists that have made fundamental contributions to the body of natural resource science."
