WILD 355 Wildlife-Livestock Habitat Restoration
- Identification and definition of the processes that create and maintain riparian ecosystems.
- Linkage between wildfire patterns and riparian processes.
- Assessment of grazing management practices for the protection and enhancement of water quality and riparian ecosystems.
Accomplishments and Interests
- Established existence of linkage between forest structure and groundwater recharge of riparian areas..
- Description of the interaction between stream bank stability and livestock grazing.
- Identified the response of certain sedges and willows to grazing.
- Identified the relationship between groundwater levels, soil texture and certain sedge, willow and cottonwood community types.
- Continued refinement of bison landform and foraging preferences.
