Summary

Our proposal addresses Funding Category Ill by evaluating natural resource management practices and adaptation opportunities. More specifically, our project addresses Science Need #6 to improve monitoring and inventory of watersheds and ecosystems (including invasive species). Our proposed study will occur within the Southern Rockies Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) (upper Virgin River, UT) and the Desert LCC (lower Virgin River, AZ and NVL and therefore will be submitting to both cooperatives. Invasive saltcedar (Tamarix spp.) is the third most abundant tree in Southwestern riparian systems (Friedman et al. 2005). Resource managers must often balance the management goals of protecting wildlife species and habitats with control [...]

Purpose

Determine the effects of saltcedar biocontrol and riparian restoration on wildlife habitat and food resources along the Virgin River; relate biocontrol changes in habitat structure and composition to wildlife communities (avifauna and herpetofauna) along the Virgin River; and relate changes in food resources to avifauna and herpetofauna diet composition along the Virgin River.
