Desert and Dryland Forest Research Group at UNLV Coordinated by Scott Abella, Assistant Research Professor, scott.abella@unlv.edu
 

Summary: Desert and Dryland Forest Research Group at UNLV
Coordinated by Scott Abella, Assistant Research Professor, scott.abella@unlv.edu
We provide knowledge services about the ecology and management of
southwestern USA desert and dryland forest ecosystems.
We conduct and provide research, monitoring, scientific literature
synthesis, and technical assistance to resource managers.
Projects are run through the UNLV School of Life Sciences, Office of
Research, or the Public Lands Institute, depending on project-specific
needs.
We have expertise in botany, invasive species ecology and treatment, fire
ecology, restoration ecology, monitoring design and statistical analysis, and
scientific literature synthesis.
We specialize in working with resource managers to address key information
needs for management through applied research that builds ecological
knowledge and results in accessible scientific publications.
Examples of recent projects:
Monitoring post-fire plant succession and BLM seeding effectiveness (BLM
collaboration)
Research projects to guide revegetation in rare plant habitat (National Park
Service collaboration)
