FY2014One of the primary challenges facing public land managers in the Great Basin is identifying adaptation strategies to increase resiliency to climate change in an area that is already struggling with profound environmental challenges. Recent efforts to understand how the Great Basin weathered past droughts and climate variability may offer insight into approaches that could work in future decades. One approach to gather this information is to understand Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK). Gathering this information is challenging and requires an acknowledgment that much of this information is highly sensitive and proprietary. Translating this information into actionable management plans is even more challenging.This...

FY2014The goals for the project are1) Develop a Walker River Vision document which will include Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) of the traditional plants, wildlife, fish and water located on the reservation and traditional hunting/ gathering areas of the Agai Dicutta Numa (Walker River Paiutes) for use in future resource management planning and cultural sustainability..2) Develop a pilot project along the Walker River on the reservation by planting willows and other traditional plants to determine best practices for re-vegetation.This project will focus on GBLCC Goal 2: Focus science and management actions to sustain natural resources in the context of changing environmental conditions.The proposed project...

Two field studies revealed large differences among various subgroups in the population of car drivers. Private drivers, commuters, and business drivers differed strongly with respect to current decisions and behaviour which affect CO2 emissions, and with respect to their sensitivity to various policy instruments. Several promising policy targets were identified" combinations of user groups and behaviours where substantial CO2 reduction may be achieved. The sensitivity of different car user groups to various policy measures showed whether and how desired behavioral changes may be realised.

CRIS offer tools for viewing and querying the wyoming Cultural Resources spatial attribute data, and performing analysis tasks such as selecting features and identifying features.

Number of fatal highway accidents and alcohol-related accidents by county for 1998 and 1999, expressed as automobile fatalities as a percent of total county populations. The data source used to create the data was the U.S. Department of Transportation, Bureau of Tranportation Statistics, Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS): http://www.fars.nhtsa.dot.gov.

FY2014This project will explore tribal cultural relationships and practices connected to resources and other aspects of nature that are potentially affected by climate change. Tribes are disproportionately affected by climate change because their economies, traditions, and even identity are heavily reliant on place-based natural resources, and changes in these resources may result in associated shifts and adaptations in tribal cultural traditions. Dr. Samantha Chisholm Hatfield, an enrolled member of the Confederated Tribes of Siletz and a cultural anthropologist, will interview elders with two tribes in the Great Basin in order to learn how a changing environment has affected aspects of tribal culture. Observations...
Many people believe that 'sustainable solutions' to global air pollution and climate change should include significant changes in human consumption and lifestyles. Under this heading six different NRP projects have been conducted. This chapter gives a review and assessment of these projects, supplemented with discussions of related research. The paper starts with a general statement of the environmental problem of household metabolism as a key component of the socio-economic production- consumption cycle. It summarises and comments upon nine different (sub)projects. And it ends with general observations, conclusions and suggestions for research and policy in relation to sustainable consumption patterns. Conceptual...

Native Americans are one of the most vulnerable populations to climate change in the United States because of their reliance upon the natural environment for food, livelihood, and cultural traditions. In the Southwest, where the temperature and precipitation changes from climate change are expected to be particularly severe, tribal communities may be especially vulnerable. Through this project, researchers sought to better understand the climate change threats facing the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe of northwestern Nevada. Researchers found that the Tribe’s vulnerability to climate change stems from its dependence on Pyramid Lake, which may experience reduced water supply in the future. This will potentially have negative...

This research project documented the Native American cultural traditions in the Duckwater Shoshone and the Paiute tribes’ responses to climate change in the Great Basin region. Aspects of tribal culture often include fish, wildlife, or plants as central images or main symbolic figures. Because climate change affects the presence, abundance and patterns of distribution of animals and plants, it is important to analyze behaviors connected to those resources. This project carried out research pertaining to the effects of climate on aspects of the environment and resources relevant to these two Great Basin tribes, leading to insights regarding possible responses of tribal culture to focal animals and plants that, in...
