H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest LTER and Bunchgrass Ridge (Oregon)
Application Deadline: March 10, 2013
Duration: mid June through mid August (a longer assignment may be possible)
Field positions are available to assist with vegetation measurements for a large-scale meadow-restoration experiment. We are studying whether tree removal, with or without fire, can reverse the effects of decades to centuries of conifer encroachment of montane meadows in the Oregon Cascades. You will join a team of field researchers (faculty, students, and summer interns) studying various aspects of meadow ecology at Bunchgrass Ridge.
