In this issue of the GSD Update, we take a look back at selected studies of the Grassland, Shrubland and Desert Ecosystems Science Program (GSD) that depict its strengths and focus areas. Significant results of recent research and science delivery by GSD scientists are highlighted. We feature program research that lines up with the strategic research priorities of the USDA Forest Service and the Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS). In particular, we spotlight accomplishments in GSD research and technology that addresses: conservation, restoration and resiliency of sagebrush ecosystems; availability, adaptation, seed zones and deployment of native plant species, the role of climate in species adaptation, carbon storage, and land management; and the effects of disturbances and stressors on ecosystems.
Keywords: native plants, climate change, restoration, blackbrush, resilience, sagebrush ecosystems, soil, Great Basin juniper, fire, grazing, invasive species, flies
