Most widely held works by Rocky Mountain Research Station (Fort Collins, Colo.)
Shrubland ecosystem genetics and biodiversity : proceedings : Provo, UT, June 13-15, 2000( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 226 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

Lichen communities indicator results from Idaho : baseline sampling by Peter Neitlich( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Epiphytic lichen communities are included in the national Forest Health Monitoring (FHM) program because they help us assess resource contamination, biodiversity, and sustainability in the context of forest health. In 1996, field crews collected lichen samples on 141 field plots systematically located across all forest ownership groups in Idaho. Results presented here are the baseline assessment of the statewide field survey. Seventy-five epiphytic macrolichen species were reported from Idaho. Mean species richness varied significantly from seven to 12 species per plot depending on ecoregion province (p <0.0001). Four lichen species are reported for the first time in Idaho. Major community gradients in nonmetric multidimensional scaling (NMS) ordination are most strongly related to latitude, elevation, percent forest cover, and lichen species richness. Ecoregion provinces occupy significantly different subsections of n-dimensional species space in multi-response permutation procedures (MRPP, p <1 x 10⁻⁸)
Relationship of seed microsite to germination and survival of lodgepole pine on high-elevation clearcuts in northeastern Utah by Deborah S Page-Dumroese( Book )

Fire frequency effects on fuel loadings in pine-oak forests of the Madrean Province by Francisco J Escobedo( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Loadings of downed woody fuels in pine-oak forests of the Madrean Province are heavier on sites in southeastern Arizona with low fire frequencies and lower on sites in northeastern Sonora, Mexico, with high fire frequencies. Low fire frequencies in southeastern Arizona are attributed largely to past land uses and the fire suppression policies of land management agencies in the United States. Ecologists and land managers interested in reintroducing fire into these forests to reduce fuel loadings and meet other land management objectives could use information about fuel buildups in their planning efforts. Quantifying these fuel loadings could also be useful in improving fire behavior models for the forests

Integrated management of carbon sequestration and biomass utilization opportunities in a changing climate : proceedings of the 2009 National Silviculture Workshop, 2009 June 15-18, Boise, ID by National Silviculture Workshop( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forests are important for carbon sequestration and how they are manipulated either through natural or human induced disturbances can have an effect on CO₂ emissions and carbon sequestration. The 2009 National Silviculture Workshop presented scientific information and management strategies to meet a variety of objectives while simultaneously addressing carbon sequestration and biomass utilization. The focus areas were: the role of climate change in science and management; silvicultural methods to address carbon sequestration and biomass utilization; alternative silvicultural strategies to address the growth and development of forests; and current applications of computer simulation models or modeling techniques designed to provide decision support
Third Forest Vegetation Simulator Conference : Fort Collins, CO, February 13-15, 2007 by Forest Vegetation Simulator Conference( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) is a suite of computer modeling tools for predicting the long-term effects of alternative forest management actions. FVS was developed in the early 1980s and is used throughout the United Sates and British Columbia. The Third FVS conference, held February 13-15, 2007, in Fort Collins Colorado, contains 20 papers. They describe the use of FVS on the stand and landscape scale, and to analyze fuels management in the presence of insects and fire. Several papers compare FVS predictions of the effects of insects and disease to field measurements. FVS is continually evolving and improving in technology and capability to meet the needs of its ever increasing user community. Papers describe new methods for data acquisition and preparation for input to FVS, new economic analysis capabilities within FVS, new methods for simulating forest regeneration, new developments in calculating growth and mortality, and future plans for incorporating the effects of climate change in model simulations

Understanding change: wildfire in Boulder County, Colorado by Hannah Brankert-Smith( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This data set provides the unique ability to examine changes in attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors over time by presenting a paired household data set from surveys conducted in 2007 and 2010. Overall, we see significant increases in overall concern about wildfire risk and changes in perceptions of likely outcomes associated with wildfire events. What is particularly unique for this data set is that the surveys were conducted before and after a major wildfire event in Boulder County. While we are unable to determine the extent to which the events of the Fourmile Canyon Fire specifically had on attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors among study respondents, it is apparent that the Boulder County respondents demonstrated change over time in different ways than the respondents in the adjacent Larimer County (See RN 58 TBA). The data from this survey, along with the companion data from Larimer County (See RN 58 TBA) demonstrate the value of collecting data beyond the community case-study scale. While we see some consistency across the two counties over the two survey periods, we also see some differences in trajectory in the responses from the two counties; the extent to which the differences are related to policy-level differences between the counties, the unfolding of major wildfire events in one county and not the other, or a combination of these and other factors remains to be seen but provides interesting avenues for future inquiry. Most notable, perhaps, is that we see that survey respondents are aware of wildfire risk and are continuing to take action to reduce risk and are not simply passive in the face of escalating risk."--Page 20-21
