View the publication here!

This publication is an outcome of field discussions held between agency managers, researchers, and university scientists to bring together existing research and publications as well as current management knowledge, then combined with the authors' field and career observations. Subsequent collaboration between the Rocky Mountain Research Station, The Nature Conservancy, Utah State University, the US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the Southern Rockies Fire Science Network resulted in literature searches, workshops, and research on the current body of knowledge regarding Gambel oak in the central Rockies, with a geographic focus on Colorado and Utah. This publication identifies nine key points summarizing the current status of our scientific understanding of Gambel oak in this region.
