Start Date: Feb 01, 2012
End Date: Jan 31, 2017
Collaborative experiments will be designed and implemented at jointly identified sites in the southwestern United States within the Malpai Borderlands Region. Experiments will be patterned after existing experiments to 1) apply methods for describing ecological sites in a globally consistent manner that can be applied specifically to the Malpai Borderlands region and properties that ar linked to those ecological site; 2) assess historical land management practices, especially prescribed burning, and 3) provide data access and data products that can be used by land managers for resource conservation and management.
