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.
