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
SNRE climate specialist Gregg Garfin to participate as part of a team analyzing the impacts of climate change on wildfires and assessing where and when climatic conditions are likely to stress vegetation. The Center is housed within our Office of Arid Lands Studies.

MTNCLIM 2012 is sponsored by the Consortium for Integrated Climate Research on Western Mountains (CIRMOUNT), and is dedicated to mountain climate sciences and effects of climate variability on ecosystems, natural resources, and conservation in western North American mountains. MTNCLIM conferences feature invited and contributed talks, poster sessions, and working-group sessions.
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.
Stephen Jackson, Professor of Botany at the University of Wyoming has been named the Director for the new Southwest Climate Science Center. The center's goal is to provide local land managers access to the science of climate change and other stressors to national natural resources. Stephen Jackson will be an Adjunct Research Professor in SNRE and an Adjunct Professor in Geosciences.
