New Genetic Tool Highlights Bull Trout Distribution
The National Genomics Center for Wildlife and Fish Conservation collaborated with a local high school student to develop a new DNA test to detect river otters in streams.
BOISE, ID — Bromus species – such as cheatgrass – are exotic annual grasses that have become the dominant annual grasses in the western hemisphere. Their spread and impacts across the western U.S. continue despite the many attempts by land managers to control these species. A new book edited by scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey, U.S.
The Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS) and Region 4 jointly hosted a science-management dialogue in December 2015 to prepare for Forest Planning in the Intermountain Region.
The U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station announced today Dr. Michael Schwartz was honored as one of the “2015 World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds” and was named one of the “Most Highly Cited Researchers of 2015” by Thomson-Reuters.
Scientists at the U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station and National Genomics Center for Wildlife and Fish Conservation announced today in a new paper in the journal Ecology and Evolution that pure cutthroat trout populations are widespread and in fact, there are more pure fish that originally thought.
In order to restore and maintain resilient and healthy ecosystems, land managers need better information on what level of fire is appropriate for any given region, and further, a better understanding of current departures from natural levels of fire activity. Scientists developed a model to quantify these departures in expected fire activity, which is presented in a new study published in the December 2015 issue of the journal Ecosphere: “...
