    Providing raw material for fuel and constructing shelters were the two most important uses for juniper see below. Prescribed fire in pinyon-juniper has been used to control the establishment of trees, increase forb productivity, increase habitat diversity, control invasion of other conifers, alter herbivore distribution, enhance forage palatability and nutritive quality, and prepare sites for reseeding. Despite their age and the rough beauty that comes with it, these are largely uncelebrated forests. Bleich, and J.

    Traces of old stumps, charred wood and charcoal kilns persist to this day. An ecosystem that defines the West deserves better. A night rain shower makes the soil moist for a few hours and that's enough to trigger wildflower germination. Both would then fall on to the mats. At lower elevations, pinyon-juniper may interface with habitats such as Joshua tree and desert scrub. None of these dates are from cultural contexts, however, and no evidence exists for human reliance on pinyon prior to the AD date proffered above.

    After disturbance or following an invasion, pinyonjuniper habitats slowly proceed through the successional sequence. Mining use of charcoal cutting, fence construction, firewood cutting, and other uses may have reduced areas of pinyon-juniper woodland. In several Mojave Desert locations, pinyons and junipers are found with white fir Henrickson and Prigge as mixed conifer. The Fremont used both as did the Anasazi. Topography and Soils Great Basin and Southwestern topography is extremely varied, with valleys and lowlands separated by mountain ranges.

Concentrating only on the older trees and leaving many of the younger trees will reduce the longevity of the treatment. It is difficult to attribute these changes to any Management of pinyon-juniper woodlands book stressor or disturbance factor.

I will focus on plants in the paper, and more specifically, pinyon and juniper.

Hewitt, Nancy J. Photograph by Peter Weisberg. In the extreme western Great Basin in Owens Valley of eastern California, archaeologists have found that evidence for intensive use of pinyon does not appear until after about AD or so Bettinger Medicinal and Miscellaneous Uses Medicinal uses of pinyon were limited, although pitch or gum was sometimes put into boiling water and drunk to purge individuals infected with worms or other parasites Chamberlin Stand structure varies depending on site quality and elevation.

Productivity of the trees varies also. Biome classification recognizes that pinyons require twelve inches of precipitation annually. Charred hulls are generally accepted as good evidence for humans gathering and consuming nuts. Potential evapotranspiration in from one to four times as great as precipitation Rowlands et al.

Simple, and life is more pleasant. The archaeological data raise a number of interesting questions about pinyon use over space and time. Using terms such as "treatment" and "restore" BLM proposes to clearcut and thin natural communities that may have more to do with livestock range improvements than helping sage grouse and other wildlife.

Pinyon, juniper, and associated species of vegetation continue to be harvested and utilized by modern peoples today. Temperature swings are dramatic: 90 degrees for a week, followed by snow, snow followed by 80 degree temperatures, and frost almost any time.
