About this book

For millennia the ecology of the Great Basin has evolved because of climate change and the impacts of human presence. Nevada’s Changing Wildlife Habitat is the first book to explain the transformations in the plants and animals of this region over time and how they came about. Using data gleaned from archaeological and anthropological studies, numerous historical documents, repeat photography, and several natural sciences, the authors examine changes in vegetation and their impact on wildlife species and the general health of the environment. They also outline the choices that current users and managers of rangelands face in being good stewards of this harsh but fragile environment and its wildlife.

“This book is very timely and thought-provoking. Anyone interested in wildlife populations, wildlife habitat, and natural resource management needs to read it. Because some of the topics are so controversial – for example, the benefits and impacts of wildfires and livestock grazing – readers will be challenged to think deeply about the ecological relationships and processes we see unfolding in our landscapes.”
- Kent McAdoo, specialist in rangeland resources, University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Service, Elko County
