Project Title: Vegetation Community Mapping at Chocolate Mountains Aerial Gunnery Range, Marine Corps Air Station Yuma
Date: Statements of Interest due by 20 Aug 2014
Brief Description of Anticipated Work:
The purpose of this is to develop a vegetation map for the CMAGR that is currently under management by MCAS Yuma. The vegetation map will be used to provide for land management of the range by assisting in the identification of rare and/or sensitive vegetation types, and by developing a baseline for which to gauge vegetation changes. In addition, a flora collection will be compiled, with specimens archived at two herbaria, to be used as vouchers for future plant identification purposes.
Period of Performance. The period of performance for this Cooperative Agreement will be dependent upon the final proposal selected, but is expected to be 18 months. The work is anticipated to begin in September 2014.

The 12th Biennial Scientific Conference on the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem
The Program Committee of the 12th Biennial Scientific Conference on the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is pleased to announce the next conference in this series, which will focus on the challenges and opportunities posed by crossing environmental, disciplinary, and jurisdictional boundaries. The conference will be held October 6‒8, 2014 in Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.
The Greater Yellowstone biennial scientific conference series, initiated in 1991, encourages awareness and application of wide-ranging, high-caliber scientific work on the region's natural and cultural resources. These conferences, with the active involvement of professional societies and other institutions, provide a much-needed forum for knowledge-sharing among hundreds of researchers, park managers, and the general public. They attract world-class speakers and are interdisciplinary by design.

Location: UC Berkeley
Dates: March 25-27, 2015
Abstract submission deadline: Nov. 1, 2014
In partnership with
National Geographic and the National Park Service.
Cross-cutting themes include:
(1) the purpose of national parks and their relevancy today; (2) challenges and opportunities of implementing the
Organic Act, which established the National Park Service, and its dictate “to conserve unimpaired” in a world with a
rapidly changing climate, invasive species, and shifting pathogens and disturbance regimes; (3) connecting people to
parks in a future with shifting demographics and increased urbanization that dissociates people from nature;
(4) parks as coupled natural-human systems connected to regional landscapes; and (5) visions of the future of parks
and conservation science in a world with declining biodiversity and budgets.
