About Christopher A. Call

My research emphasizes vegetation manipulation and management on arid and semiarid rangelands in the Great Basin. Research projects include: 1) use of chemical, biological and prescribed burning practices to break the cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum) / fire cycle; 2) fire behavior modeling and post-fire revegetation of cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum) dominated communities; and 3) characterization of ecological site descriptions and state-and-transition models for land management. My outreach emphasis is on improving the natural resource and environmental literacy of citizens of all ages. My outreach efforts include website development, traveling exhibit development, elementary and secondary school curriculum development, and K-12 teacher field tours and workshops
related to invasive species control and native species restoration in the Great Basin.
