The road to Garnet's gold : a brief history of Montana's gold rush, featuring one of the last ghost towns( )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores Garnet during its heyday and describes the people who stand out in its history. Garnet was hardly the most successful gold mining town in Montana, nor was it one of the first. In fact, it was one of the last gold towns to become a ghost town. Garnet's story can hardly be told alone and hinges on the path of gold discovery in the State of Montana. As a result, this book is a brief account of Montana's gold rush, followed by a more detailed exploration of the Garnet story"--Page 1

Conservation and management of whitebark pine ecosystems : on Bureau of Land Management Lands in the western United States by Dana L Perkins( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis Engelm.), an important component of western high-elevation forests, has been declining in both the United States and Canada from the combined effects of the exotic disease white pine blister rust (caused by the pathogen Cronartium ribicola), mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) outbreaks, altered fire regimes, and climate change. These combined threats have led to the recent listing of whitebark pine as a high priority Candidate Species under the Endangered Species Act

Gray clay (Malpass clay) in the west Eugene Wetlands and the Willamette Valley is weathered and redeposited ash from Mount Mazama by Karin E Baitis( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The climactic eruption of Mount Mazama approximately 7,600 years ago distributed airfall tuff throughout what is now eastern and offshore Oregon. This distinctive tephrostratigraphic marker had been thought to be absent across the Willamette Valley. X-ray diffraction, examination of pyrogenic mineral suites, and new high-resolution radiometric dating (40AR/39AR) of Malpass clay from tuffaceous marker beds suggest that it is the missing ash from Mount Mazama. Over time and weathering, the ash has transformed into a smectitic gray imogolite and clay. Analysis of this widespread gray clay provided a radiocarbon date of 6,850 ± 70 years before present. Radiometric dating of the clay provided the ages of 7,987 ± 102, 8,451 ± 57, and 8,540 ± 48 years before present. These dates are comparable with that of the climactic eruption of Mount Mazama

Annotated checklist of freshwater truncatelloidean gastropods of the western United States, with an illustrated key to the genera by Robert Hershler( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This technical note provides an illustrated key to the 13 genera and a checklist for the 178 currently recognized species of freshwater, inland saline, and estuarine truncatelloidean gastropods (primarily belonging to the families Amnicolidae, Cochliopidae, Hydrobiidae, Lithoglyphidae, and Tateidae) in the western United States. It also outlines methods of specimen preparation and dissection to facilitate use of the generic key. The checklist includes bibliographic information for each species (and their synonyms), type localities, type material, and geographic distributions. The appendix includes a comprehensive synopsis of the available DNA barcoding sequences (the COI gene, cytochrome c oxidase subunit I) for members of this fauna in the anticipation that these data will be increasingly used for both taxonomic and conservation genetic applications. This technical note serves as an entry portal for resource managers, taxonomists, and other individuals interested in this species-rich and highly imperiled fauna
Advancing science in the BLM : an implementation strategy by Kate Kitchell( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA) directs the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to manage the public lands for multiple use and sustained yield so as to ensure the health, diversity, and productivity of America's public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. Carrying out this mission is increasingly complex and visible in a world of rapid and dynamic change, presenting the BLM with difficult choices that will affect how the land will look for generations to come. The intricacy of natural and cultural systems, combined with public expectations and legal dictates, make it essential for the BLM to continue to be "science-informed," supporting its current culture in which mission-oriented science enables managers and staff to apply science in decisionmaking and adaptive management, at every level and in every program
Bureau of Land Management rangeland resource assessment : 2011 by Michael G Karl( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2011 Rangeland Resource Assessment (RRA) is a first-of-its-kind report on the status and condition of renewable resources on federal rangelands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The BLM based the RRA on a statistical survey of 879 locations across BLM rangelands in 13 western states. Standardized field methods and a statistically valid study design to measure attributes and indicators of rangeland status and condition were consistently used across all rangelands sampled

AIM national aquatic monitoring framework : field protocol for wadeable lotic systems( )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2021 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) developed the National Aquatic Monitoring Framework (NAMF) to monitor the condition and trend of aquatic systems as part of the Assessment, Inventory, and Monitoring (AIM) Strategy. Following the AIM principles, the NAMF standardized aquatic core indicators, field sampling methodologies, electronic data capture, and the use of statistically valid sample designs for wadeable streams and rivers (i.e., lotic systems). The protocol in this technical reference outlines the field methodologies for the collection of the core and contingent indicators for lotic systems, as well as suggested covariates"--Page 1

Guide to using AIM and LMF data in land health evaluations and authorizations of permitted uses by Emily Kachergis( )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This technical note serves as a guide for using Assessment, Inventory, and Monitoring (AIM) data, along with other available data, to complete evaluations of land health and related authorizations of permitted uses as required by BLM policy ... The key steps for completing a land health evaluation for a given area using AIM data include: selecting indicators for each applicable land health standard; setting benchmark values that define good conditions for each selected indicator; identifying relevant AIM plots and grouping them appropriately for analysis; and summarizing which benchmarks are or are not attained at each plot. A land health evaluation report then draws conclusions about which of the applicable land health standards are or are not achieved, with justification from AIM data and other information sources"--Page 5
