Here’s the abstract:

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.
