Abstract

Can past climate patterns be used to predict future climate changes? How will native grass communities react to changes in precipitation patterns in the Great Basin of the United States — will native grasses be replaced by other, perhaps less desirable species? Can we compare relatively pristine ecosystems across the world to similar ecosystems in United States to detect global-scale changes? How will grazing and climate changes interact to affect ecosystems in the Chihuahuan Desert? Can we accurately relate ground-based vegetation measurements to satellite images?
