The Relationship Of Bulbous Bluegrass And Big Sagebrush In Utah, Jason D. Cox

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

The increase in abundance and distribution of bulbous bluegrass (Poa bulbosa) has been a concern of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. Very little research has been conducted to analyze the invasiveness of bulbous bluegrass in the Intermountain West. This study used data from 1982 to 2012 at range trend study sites across the state of Utah to investigate trends in bulbous bluegrass abundance, range expansion, and co-occurrence with big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) and cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum). This study addressed the question of whether the increase of bulbous bluegrass correlates with changes in sagebrush and/or cheatgrass in Utah using ...

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

The Bear River Watershed (BRW) is located in northeastern Utah, southeastern Idaho, and southwestern Wyoming. Over the three states the watershed encompasses an area of 7,500 square miles (4,800,000 acres). The Bear River 's headwaters begin at close to 13,000 feet in the High Uintas Wilderness Area of northeastern Utah. The course of the river follows a horseshoe pattern flowing north through Wyoming, Utah, and Idaho before bending south at Soda Springs. The river then meanders through the Gem and Cache Valleys before reaching its delta at the Great Salt Lake at an elevation of 4 ...

Alternative Future Growth Scenarios For Conserving Open Space Along Utah's Wasatch Front: A Case Study For The Mountain Land Association Of Governments, Richard E. Toth

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Over the past 20 years, rapid suburban and second-home development along Utah's Wasatch Front has threatened to irreversibly alter the region 's character and quality of life. This rapid development has raised concern among federal, state, county and community leaders with respect to the protection of surface and subsurface water; public health, safety and welfare; public services and infrastructure, and open space. The major areas being developed include the valley edges and bottom lands, riparian zones, agricultural lands and bench areas. Since most of these areas are under private ownership, they are highly vulnerable to an array of development ...

As the farmers of Utah and the nation become more highly trained and more efficient in adapting new technological knowledge in their farming enterprises, farms increase in size and the number of workers needed to produce food for our state and nation decreases. A concurrent yet opposite change occurs in those businesses which perform services for farmers or which market, process, and distribute the farmer's product. Farmers are demanding more skilled services while consumers are demanding that the farms' products receive more processing and distribution services which must be performed off the farm. We, thus, have a growing network ...

Deer hunting is often done by the amateur, who with little or no experience has few or improper tools or information for dressing and caring ...
