About this product
- DescriptionFor millennia the ecology of the Great Basin has evolved because of climate change and the impacts of human presence. Nevada's Changing Wildlife Habitat is the first book to explain the changes in the plants and animals of this region over time and how these changes came about. Using data gleaned from archaeological and anthropological studies, numerous historical documents, repeat photography, and several natural sciences, the authors examine changes in vegetation and their impact on wildlife species and on the general health of the environment. They also outline the choices that current users and managers of rangelands face in being good stewards of this harsh but fragile environment and its wildlife.
- Author BiographyGeorge E. Gruell is a retired wildlife biologist for the U.S. Forest Service. He has published widely on vegetation succession, wildlife habitat, and fire ecology in the West and has pioneered the use of repeat photography for recording ecological changes over time.
Sherman Swanson is a range and riparian specialist for the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Service and associate professor in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Science at the University of Nevada, Reno, USA.
