LONG TERM CONSEQUENCES OF USING NONNATIVE SPECIES
IN POST-FIRE RESTORATION AND FUEL-BREAKS
How implicit goals can define “success” or “failure”.
presented by Francis F. Kilkenny, PhD
US Forest Service RMRS
Great Basin Native Plant Project Lead
Dr. Kilkenny of Boise will share examples of his studies on some long-term vegetation
dynamics of post-fire restoration seedings in the sagebrush steppe of the Intermountain West.
*Are differing goals, philosophies and concerns rather than scientific findings
contributing to the spread of introduced species from fuel-break “green strips”?
*How are restoration goals being defined and met?
*Is there room for improvement?
*Native vs. Nonnative?
join us for answers to these questions and to learn of
collaborative efforts to evaluate and improve restoration practices:
