John Tanaka
Associate Director, WAES, and Professor

John Tanaka

I am serving as the Associate Director of the Wyoming Agricultural Experiment Station and Director of the James C. Hagemen Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center near Lingle.

Title

  • Associate Director of the Wyoming Agricultural Experiment Station and Director of the James C. Hagemen Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center near Lingle.
  • Science Coordinator, Sustainable Rangelands Roundtable

Areas of Expertise

  • Rangeland Management
  • Rangeland Economics
  • Public Land Policy    

Research Interests

I am currently most interested in the questions related to sustainability of rangelands.  This includes the ecological functioning of the rangelands, the economic values and decisions that are made, and the communities and families that depend on them.  Most of my research focus is on activities of the Sustainable Rangelands Roundtable of which I am the Science Coordinator.

My research has focused on the economic impacts of various public land management options on western ranches; economics of ecosystem goods and services; economics of rangeland management practices; and related activities.

Because of my administrative duties, I rarely am looking for graduate students but am available to serve on graduate student committees.  I occasionally advise graduate students as funding becomes available.

Teaching Activities

I have no formal teaching within the college. I occasionally guest lecture or otherwise assist with a class.

International Activities

None
