Our description of old growth woodlands has also been incorporated into juniper control projects to provide protection for these stands. Our research is relevant to the sagebrush and pinyon juniper woodland biomes in the Intermountain. For example, estimates of fire frequency in mountain big sagebrush communities using fire-scar records on adjacent and intermixed ponderosa pines and Rocky Mountain Douglas-firs suggest relatively short fire intervals [13,48,66,,], and proximity to these fire-prone forest types may have led to more frequent fires in these.

This manual, intended to be used by land managers, natural resource management students, and users of the woodlands, is a current state-of-the-art summary and compila- tion of information on the ecology and management of pinyon-juniper woodlands.

DISTRIBUTION Wyoming big sagebrush and basin big sagebrush steppe and shrubland communities are widely distributed throughout the West, and occur mostly in the Intermountain West (the region bounded by the Cascade Range, Sierra Nevada, and Arizona/New Mexico mountains to the west and the front ranges of the Rocky Mountains to the east), but they.

Disturbance in many forms is a natural part of ecosystem dynamics. Fire, periodic drought, flooding, and small-scale animal disturbance result in a mosaic of vegetation types that allows for the coexistence of plant and animal species with diverse habitat needs.

In recent history, however, grassland, shrubland and desert systems have come under increasing. In most cases, fire rotation and HFRI were similar with the exception of pinyon-juniper woodlands (Table 1, Table 3). Estimates of fire rotation and fire return intervals from pinyon-juniper woodlands are poorly understood (Baker and Shinneman, ) making it difficult to estimate past fire area for this vegetation by: As the current population of the dominant R glandulosa ages, growth and biomass accumulation rates should slow, unless other woody species compensate.

The understory shrubs that colonize beneath the Prosopis canopy subsequent to its establishment in grasslands slow Prosopis growth and seed production, hasten its mortality (Barnes and Archer Cited by: This banner text can have markup. web; books; video; audio; software; images; Toggle navigation.

Mastication is a forest fuel thinning treatment that involves chipping or shredding small trees and shrubs and depositing the material across the forest floor.

INTRODUCTION TO BIOMASS BIOMASS OVERVIEW Biomass is defined as any organic matter that is available on a renewable or recurring basis.

It includes all plants and plant derived materials, including agricultural crops and trees, wood and wood residues, grasses 5/5(1). The ecology of the Rocky Mountains is diverse due to the effects of a variety of environmental factors.

The Rocky Mountains are the major mountain range in western North America, running from the far north of British Columbia in Canada to New Mexico in the southwestern United States, climbing from the Great Plains at or below 1, feet ( m) to peaks of o.

For example, Townsend’s Big-eared Bats (Corynorhinus townsendii) have been observed foraging in pinyon-juniper habitats in northeastern Nevada up to 25 miles from known water sources (Bradley ) and up to 40 miles in other areas. Strong correlations exist among vegetation-soil-topography variables, which vary nonlinearly with elevation, such that warm, dry, low-elevation portions of these ranges are characterized by relatively low above-ground biomass, thin soils, minimal soil organic matter, steep slopes, and high drainage densities; conversely, cooler, wetter, higher.
