Book signing and illustrated talk by J. Edward de Steiguer, author of "Wild Horses of the West: History and Politics of America's Mustangs." The book tells the story of these magnificent animals, from their evolution and biology to their historical integration into conquistador, Native American, and cowboy cultures. The talk also addresses the protection of wild horses in the West today. $7.50 adult, $4.50 youth 7-13, children free.
Prof. de Steiguer's book, "Wild Horses" nominated for 2012 Best History Book Award from the New Mexico-Arizona Book Coop
Professor Ed de Steiguer's book, Wild Horses of the West: History and Politics of America's Mustangs (University of Arizona Press, 2011) has been nominated by the New Mexico-Arizona Book Coop for its 2012 Best History Book Award. Wild Horses, which stems from Ed's interest in western public lands, traces the horse from its re-introduction to North America by the Spanish in 1493 to the present-day conflict over mustangs on the federal range. This is the book's seventh award nomination. It was already won
The Department of Forest Management seeks to appoint an Assistant Professor of Rangeland Ecology and Management who will contribute to the teaching, research, and service missions of the College of Forestry at the University of Montana. This is a nine month, tenure-track position. Employment will begin in Autumn 2013.
Area of Expertise:Ecology and Management of Rangelands
I study the impacts of woody plant encroachment into historic grasslands, specifically the influence of this large-scale land cover change on dryland decomposition and soil formation dynamics.

The Climate Assessment for the Southwest (CLIMAS) program has received a $3.5M grant to continue their research on identifying and evaluating climate impacts on human and natural systems in the Southwest. The grant is funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). SNRE faculty involved in the program includes Dr. Gregg Garfin and Dr. Holly Hartmann.
Area of Expertise:biological soil crusts, ecosystem management, multi-jurisdictional partnerships, GIS
I am a Ph.D. student in the Ecology and Management of Rangelands Program with a minor in Global Change. My primary interest is the ecology of biological soil crusts in the Sonoran and Chihuahuan Deserts and their role in public land management. My research will focus on the ecological potential of biological soil crusts in the Sonoranand ChihuahuanDeserts, techniques to monitor and assess biological soil crust communities, and the utility of biological soil crusts in ecological restoration and cultural resources protection.
Area of Expertise:Adaptive management
Area of Expertise:invasive plant ecology and management, vegetation monitoring, restoration/revegetation of severely disturbed arid ecosystems, coordination of regional vegetation management efforts
Starting in 1999, I began working with the Natural Resources Conservation Service Plant Materials Center in Tucson. I assisted with the production and maintenance of field and greenhouse plantings, made seed and propagule collections from the field, and assisted with the installation of experimental in situ plantings and the evaluation of research results. I became familiar with concepts of plant breeding systems, problems with selection on growing wildland plants in crop settings, and the selection of propagule source populations for maintenance of genetic diversity in new
