Ann Hild, Rangeland Ecology and Watershed Management

Research interests: Revegetation of wildland disturbances such as mined lands and on areas impacted by exotic invasions and wildfire, improvement of productivity and revegetation effectiveness to enhance wildlife habitat and understand the mechanisms that contribute to and limit exotic invasions.
