Rogers Research Site Bulletins

Rogers Research Site Bulletin 1: Introduction to the University of Wyoming's Rogers Research Site, north Laramie Mountains, Wyoming

B-1298.1 Cover This is the first in a series of bulletins focused on research, teaching, and extension at the Rogers Research Site, a 320-acre property in the Laramie Mountains that Colonel William C. Rogers bequeathed to the University of Wyoming in 2002. RRS Bulletin 1 includes (1) a story about Colonel Rogers; (2) details about the property, including history, site characteristics, and initial planning; (3) information about the surrounding lands in the Laramie Mountains of southeast Wyoming; and (4) a discussion about the 2012 high-intensity Arapaho Fire and how it changed research opportunities at RRS.

Rogers Research Site Bulletin 2: Wide Constituency Guides Early Activities and Research at Rogers Research Site, north Laramie Mountains, Wyoming

B-1298.1 Cover This is the second in a series of bulletins focused on research, teaching, and extension at the Rogers Research Site, a 320-acre property in the Laramie Mountains that Colonel William C. Rogers bequeathed to the University of Wyoming in 2002. RRS Bulletin 2 includes (1) a story about Colonel Rogers; (2) details about early activities, including field days; (3) results from a 2005 public survey about what activities should take place on the land; and (4) a summary of early research, including studies relating to forestry and wildlife resources.

Rogers Research Site Bulletin 3: A Conceptual Framework to Guide Research and Teaching at Rogers Research Site, north Laramie Mountains, Wyoming

B-1298.1 Cover This is the third in a series of bulletins focused on research, teaching, and extension at the Rogers Research Site (RRS), a 320-acre property in the Laramie Mountains that Colonel William C. Rogers bequeathed to the University of Wyoming in 2002. RRS Bulletin 3 includes (1) a story about Colonel Rogers; (2) a discussion about the research, teaching, and outreach potential at RRS; (3) management objectives for the site; and (4) short- and long-term goals for RRS.

Rogers Research Site Bulletin 4: Vegetation Mapping of Rogers Research Site, north Laramie Mountains, Wyoming, Using High Spatial Resolution Photography and Heads-Up Digitizing

B-1298.4 Cover This is the fourth in a series of bulletins focused on research, teaching, and extension at the Rogers Research Site (RRS), a 320-acre property in the Laramie Mountains that Colonel William C. Rogers bequeathed to the University of Wyoming in 2002. RRS Bulletin 4 details a 2006 vegetation mapping project of RRS using high spatial resolution photography and heads-up digitizing. Since this project was completed prior to the 2012 Arapaho Fire, which burned the majority of ponderosa pine and other vegetation across nearly 100,000 acres, including RRS property, the vegetation map will help researchers, land managers, and others assess temporal changes in habitat structure and land cover within RRS and adjacent lands.

Rogers Research Site Bulletin 5: Restoration of ponderosa pine following high-intensity fire, Rogers Research Site, north Laramie Mountains, Wyoming

B1298.5 Cover This is the fifth in a series of bulletins focused on research, teaching, and extension at the Rogers Research Site (RRS), a 320-acre property in the Laramie Mountains that Colonel William C. Rogers bequeathed to the University of Wyoming in 2002. In 2012, during an extreme drought, the high-intensity Arapaho Fire burned the majority of ponderosa pine and other vegetation across nearly 100,000 acres in the Laramie Mountains, including the RRS property. In 2014, a UW student-faculty team started a study focused on the best management practices to restore the ponderosa pine forest at RRS and surrounding lands. RRS Bulletin 5 presents early findings from this ongoing research, which will contribute to the building knowledge base of post-fire ponderosa pine restoration across the western United States.

Rogers Research Site Bulletin 6: Soils of the University of Wyoming Rogers Research Site, north Laramie Mountains, Wyoming

B-1298.6 Cover This is the sixth in a series of bulletins focused on research, teaching, and extension at the Rogers Research Site (RRS), a 320-acre property in the Laramie Mountains that Colonel William C. Rogers bequeathed to the University of Wyoming in 2002. RRS Bulletin 6 details a soils inventory and mapping project that began in 2009 and continued after the 2012 Arapaho Fire, which burned nearly 100,000 acres in the Laramie Mountains, including RRS lands. This bulletin provides important baseline data for future studies at the site and surrounding lands that will be carried out by UW faculty and staff members, undergraduate and graduate students, and others.

Rogers Research Site Bulletin 7: Pre- and Post-Fire Soil Comparisons, Rogers Research Site, north Laramie Mountains, Wyoming

Pre- and Post-Fire Soil Comparisons coverThis is the seventh in a series of bulletins focused on research, teaching, and extension at the Rogers Research Site (RRS), a 320-acre property in the Laramie Mountains that Colonel William C. Rogers bequeathed to the University of Wyoming in 2002. Bulletin 7 details a study that compares soil characteristics at RRS before and after the 2012 high-intensity Arapaho Fire, which burned nearly 100,000 acres in the north Laramie Mountains, including RRS lands. One of the goals of this ongoing research is to examine ecological impacts of the burn. Preliminary results show marked soil chemical and biotic changes following the fire.

Rogers Research Site Bulletin 8: Soil Amendment Addition and Microbial Community Recovery Following High-Severity Fire at Rogers Research Site, north Laramie Mountain, Wyoming

Pre- and Post-Fire Soil Comparisons coverThis is the eighth in a series of bulletins focused on research, teaching, and extension at the Rogers Research Site (RRS), a 320-acre property in the Laramie Mountains that Colonel William C. Rogers bequeathed to the University of Wyoming in 2002. Bulletin 8 investigates the effectiveness of soil amendments (compost tea, ‘traditional’ compost, and ammonium nitrate fertilizer) for re-establishing the soil microbial community and hastening the recovery of RRS and surrounding lands to a healthy successional environment following the 2012 high-severity Arapaho Fire.
