Date and Time: 
Jan 31, 2017 8:00 am to 5:00 pm MST


The January 2017 special issue of the Society for Range Management’s signature scientific journal, Rangeland Ecology & Management (REM), presents new research on the impacts of removing conifers in sagebrush and prairie ecosystems. The new issue — “Woody invasion of western rangelands: Using grouse as focal species for ecosystem restoration” — showcases 15 manuscripts on how reducing woodland expansion benefits grouse, wildlife, and people living on rangelands in the American West.

The SRM’s annual conference will feature a full-day symposium on reducing woodland expansion in the West, based on the journal’s recently-published research studies. Research findings will be presented on Tuesday, January 31 in at the SRM’s 2017 conference, and live-streamed for free on the Sage Grouse Initiative’s website.
