Presented at the Sagebrush Ecosystems Conservation: All Lands, All Hands conference held in Salt Lake City, Utah
Date Recorded: February 24, 2016
Description: Ecosystem resilience and resistance concepts have rapidly emerged as an ecologically-based framework for coping with persistent threats in the sage steppe, such as wildfire and invasive annual grasses. Agencies have begun applying these concepts to assess risks, prioritize management activities, and select appropriate treatments from landscape to site scales. This session is designed to increase land managers’ awareness and understanding of how “R&R” applications can help them better maintain desired sagebrush communities. This 1.5 hour symposium was presented at the conference Sagebrush Ecosystems Conservation: All Lands, All Hands in February 2016.
