Gamble Oak Webinar Symposium

Nov 13, 2018 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Time listed is Mountain Time.

Gambel oak (Quercus gambelii) is a widespread species found throughout the U.S. Southwest and southern Rocky Mountains. While the species has been widely studied in Arizona and New Mexico, comparatively little is known about Gambel oak at the northern extent of its range (Colorado, Utah, southern Wyoming). Research in this geographic region is particularly important given substantial differences in growth form across the species’ range (tree vs. shrub), and because potential habitat for Gambel oak is likely to spread northward under future climate scenarios. In this webinar, we will discuss the current state of knowledge on the ecology and management of Gambel oak in the southern Rocky Mountains, with a focus on silviculture, wildfire, and post-fire.

Speakers include: Gloria Edwards, Dan Huisjen, Jonathon Coop, Kyle Rodman, Einar Jensen, Marin Chambers, Seth Ex (more information on the speakers)
