Description: Twelve watersheds in the oak savannas on the eastern side of the Peloncillo Mountains in the Southwestern Borderlands Region of New Mexico are being monitored to document the ecological and hydrologic characteristics, and to determine the effects of burning treatments on this ecosystem. Ecological components monitored include tree overstories, loadings of fuel fractions, and numbers and diversity of mammals and birds. Hydrologic components monitored are streamflow regimes, soil erosion and deposition, and sedimentation. Watershed descriptors for each watershed include its designation, size, orientation, streamflow network, monitoring network and protocols, and physiographic characteristics. The geographically-referenced data sets are incorporated into the system to facilitate their spatial interpretations.
Keywords: oak savannas, watersheds, ecological and hydrologic characteristics, burning treatments, Southwestern Borderlands Region, New Mexico
