from the research papers, panel sessions and poster presentations of 59
contributors at the Eighth Biennial Conference of Research on
the Colorado Plateau, this volume compiles a substantial body of
knowledge about managing the public lands, wildlife, a cultural
resources of the region.
||The book's 21 chapters are divided into five major sections covering
large-scale land issues, wildlife issues, vegetation issues,
"Collaborating to Achieve Conservation" and "Gaining Insight from the
Past." Lead editor Charles Charles Van Riper III provides a synthesis
piece on integrating the research presented in the volume into
biological and cultural management.
Land managers who are concerned with the monitoring and preservation of birds will find current information on monitoring and the response of avian communities to forest management... For the first time, the Colorado Plataue manager is supplied with a complete inventory of all herpetofauna that they should expect to occur on their managed land. There is also valuable inormation provided on the potential impacts of fire on native trout populations.
|There are nine national parks, 16 national monuments, numerous state parks and dozens of wilderness areas in 130,000 square miles of the southwest referred to as "the Colorado Plateau." This semi-arid region with unique geologic, archaeological, biological and sociological resources has the highest concentration of parklands and public land managers in the U.S. All across the district, there is a continuous need for the up-to-date research and information included in this annual compendium.||The Colorado Plateau Series
