“Type conversion” as catalyzed by severe disturbance

Researchers at Western Colorado University seek your help in better understanding the meaning of vegetation, site, or ecological type conversion as catalyzed by severe disturbance, particularly in reference to western North America.  They are interested in how extensively, where, and in what vegetation types this phenomenon occurs, whether it is viewed as a management concern, and how it may be addressed.  If you would like to weigh in on this topic, browse to the 5-8 minute online survey here.  The survey closes on March 15, 2019.
