  • Snow-cover critical for revegetation following forest fires
    With wildfires devastating mountain ecosystems across the western United States, their successful forest revegetation recovery hinges on, among other factors, an adequate lasting snowpack, according to research by the University of Nevada, Reno and Oregon State University.
    “Our study illustrated that summer precipitation, snow cover and elevation were all important drivers of revegetation success,” said Anne Nolin, a hydrologist and geography professor at the University of Nevada, Reno and formerly at Oregon State University. “In particular, we found that snow cover was a critical explanatory variable for revegetation in the Oregon and Washington Cascades. This could help inform revegetation management practices following severe wildfires.”

The total funding for the three-year project is $4 million.
