usfs logoAttached is the 2015 Annual Report for one of the USDA Forest Service (FS) research programs that places an emphasis on western native plants.  

This issue takes a look at a few of the 2015 research and application studies conducted by scientists and their partners with the Forest Service’s Grassland, Shrubland and Desert Ecosystems Science Program (GSD). Significant results of recent research and science delivery by program scientists are highlighted. We feature program research that lines up with the strategic research priorities of the USDA Forest Service, as well as those of our stakeholders. In particular, we spotlight accomplishments in research and technology that address:

• Conservation, restoration and resiliency of sagebrush ecosystems,

• Availability, adaptation, seed zones and deployment of native plant species.

• The role of climate in species adaptation, carbon storage, and land management.

• The effects of disturbances and stressors on ecosystems
