Rio Grande ecosystems : linking land, water, and people : toward a sustainable future for the Middle Rio Grande Basin : June 2-5, 1998, Albuquerque, New Mexico by Deborah M Finch( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These proceedings are an outcome of a symposium and workshop held June 2-5, 1998 in Albuquerque, NM. Hosted by the USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Bosque Improvement Group, in collaboration with numerous partners from a variety of sectors, the symposium was designed to report on current research and development activities in the Middle Rio Grande Basin. The purpose of the meeting was to share information and develop ideas for sustaining and conserving Middle Rio Grande Basin ecosystems, especially those from Cochiti Dam to Elephant Butte Reservoir. Experts were invited to contribute oral presentations, posters, and papers that addressed five Basin themes. Theme one's session was designed to identify methods and opportunities to enhance communication and collaboration among researchers, managers, and communities. A second theme explored ideas and approaches for conserving water and riparian resources in relation to human needs and population growth. Theme three discussed how watershed processes form linkages and influence management of upland and river resources. A fourth session identified methods and strategies for restoring and monitoring basin ecosystems and discussed project successes and failures. Theme five reported on status of endangered and sensitive species, biological diversity, and opportunites for restoring and managing habitats to recover species. Management and understanding of the Middle Rio Grande Basin's natural resources and ecosystems require communication and cooperation of partners across cultural, landowner, and organizational boundaries. To produce a shared understanding of the current state and desired future state of the Middle Rio Grande Basin and to outline the steps needed to move toward the desired future, a facilitated workshop was held the last day of the conference. The results of this workshop are reported in the concluding section of this proceedings. The technical coordinators of the symposium and proceedings wish to acknowledge all the partners who have contributed to the research, restoration, technology development, educational outreach, and special events and activities designed to improve human and ecosystem conditions in the Basin. We hope this volume captures at least some of the excitement, ideas, and productivity generated by Basin projects over the past several years."

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

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 401 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)
Forest reference conditions for ecosystem management in the Sacramento Mountains, New Mexico by Merrill R Kaufmann( )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We present the history of land use and historic vegetation conditions on the Sacramento Ranger District of the Lincoln National Forest within the framework of an ecosystem needs assessment. We reconstruct forest vegetation conditions and ecosystem processes for the period immediately before Anglo-American settlement using General Land Office survey records, historic studies and accounts, and reconstructive studies such as dendrochronological histories of fire and insect outbreak and studies of old growth. Intensive grazing, clearcut logging, fire suppression, and agriculture in riparian areas have radically altered forest structure and processes since the 1880s, when intensive settlement began in the Sacramento Mountains. Present forests are younger and more dense than historic ones, and in areas that were previously dominated by ponderosa pine, dominance has shifted to Douglas-fir and white fir in the absence of frequent surface fire. Landscapes are more homogeneous and contiguous than historic ones, facilitating large-scale, intense disturbances such as insect outbreaks and crown fires."
An assessment methodology for determining historical changes in mountain streams by Mark G Smelser( )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Successful management of water in mountain streams by the USDA Forest Service requires that the link between resource development and channel change be documented and quantified. The characteristics of that linkage are unclear in mountain streams, and the adjustability of these streams to land-use and hydrologic change has been argued in court. One way to quantify the adjustability of a stream is to examine its geomorphic history. An excellent source of historic geomorphic data are the records associated with stream gaging stations maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey. This report describes what records are available, how to organize the data on computer spreadsheets, and discusses 6 techniques that quantify the spatial and temporal magnitude of historic channel adjustments. The discharge measurements include physical measurements of the channel. In particular, USGS discharge measurements include physical measurements of the channel. By analyzing these measurements collectively, it is possible to quantify monthly, annual, and decadal scales of adjustment. Once the history of channel adjustment is determined, it can be compared to histories of climate change, flow regulation, and land use. These comparisons may link the geomorphic adjustments to particular patterns, events, or activities. Resource managers can use this knowledge to better assess the ramifications of resource development, land use, and restoration efforts on mountain stream systems."

The northern goshawk in Utah : habitat assessment and management recommendations by Russell T Graham( )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This assessment describes northern goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) habitat in the State of Utah. Because of fire exclusion, insect and disease epidemics, timber harvest, livestock grazing, or a combination of these factors the forests and woodlands of Utah have changed drastically since the early 1900's. Forests are now dominated by mid- and late successional species (Douglas-fir, white fir, and subalpine fir) rather than the early successional species (lodgepole and ponderosa pine). Along with these changes came suspected declines in goshawk populations. Goshawk habitat in Utah was assessed using potential vegetation types, current vegetation types, and expert knowledge. Subalpine fir (17 percent) and quaking aspen (10 percent) potential vegetation types were the most common forest types in the State. Nearly 95 percent of the subalpine fir potential vegetation type was rated as high or medium for nesting habitat, while nearly 90 percent of the quaking aspen potential vegetation type was rated as high or medium for nesting. Similarly, combining nesting and foraging preferences 70 percent of the subalpine fir potential vegetation type is rated as either high value or optimum habitat. In addition, throughout Utah all of the high value habitats are well connected. The present conditions of the forests and woodlands of Utah are prone to insect and disease epidemics in addition to the risk of stand replacing fires. To ensure the goshawk's continued existence in Utah will require the restoration of these degraded habitats and the protection of native processes
History of watershed research in the central Arizona highlands by Malchus B Baker( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Central Arizona Highlands have been the focus of a wide range of research efforts designed to learn more about the effects of natural and human induced disturbances on the functioning, processes, and components of the region's ecosystems. The watershed research spearheaded by the USDA Forest Service and its cooperators continues to lead to a comprehensive understanding of the region's ecology, and to formulation of management guidelines that meet the increasing needs of people in the region, and throughout the Southwestern United States. This report assembles the pertinent details of all watershed research accomplished by the USDA Forest Service and its cooperators in the region and provides highlights of the results. An extensive literature cited section is included for additional information. Information on the current status of the 5 major research area is also provided
Representativeness assessment of research natural areas on national forest system lands in Idaho by Steven K Rust( )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A representativeness assessment of National Forest System (N FS) Research Natural Areas in ldaho summarizes information on the status of the natural area network and priorities for identification of new Research Natural Areas. Natural distribution and abundance of plant associations is compared to the representation of plant associations within natural areas. Natural distribution and abundance is estimated using modeled potential natural vegetation, published classification and inventory data, and Heritage plant community element occurrence data. Minimum criteria are applied to select only viable, high quality plant association occurrences. In assigning natural area selection priorities, decision rules are applied to encompass consideration of the adequacy and viability of representation. Selected for analysis were 1,024 plant association occurrences within 214 natural areas (including 115 NFS Research Natural Areas). Of the 1,566 combinations of association within ecological sections, 28 percent require additional data for further analysis; 8, 40, and 12 percent, respectively, are ranked from high to low conservation priority; 13 percent are fully represented. Patterns in natural area needs vary between ecological section. The result provides an operational prioritization of Research Natural Area needs at landscape and subregional scales. Objective ranking criteria provide clear accounting of priority assignments that are easily updated to reflect changing information or conditions
