Faculty Awarded Grant to Study Baker Cypress

David Greene and Jeff Kane (Department of Forestry and Wildland Resources) and Melanie McCavour (Department of Environmental Science and Management) have just been awarded a 10-year $800,000 grant from the Bureau of Land Management for a study of Baker Cypress. This tree species, restricted to a few populations in northern California and southern Oregon, has seeds retained in cones that will only open when burned, and the continuation of fire exclusion is strongly contributing to its potential extinction. The purpose of the grant is to better understand the reproductive ecology of Baker Cypress, determine the feasibility of using prescribed fire and other treatments to inform the restoration and management of this species, and partner with the BLM to assess the environmental impacts of restoration actions as well as subsequently monitor the implementation of the restoration and management plans.
