- ... Reclamation research has shifted from short- to long-term assessment of mine land reclamation management strategies, wherein previously established study sites are revisited. In this study, we assessed long-term (28 y) relations among reestablished plant communities (production and diversity), replaced soil depth following mining (0.2 to 1.4 m [0.7 to 4.6 ft]), and restored slope position (5% nort ...

- ... Controlling erosion, reestablishing vegetation, and overcoming the negative effects of hydrophobic soils has long been a challenge following catastrophic wildfire on forested lands and rangelands. A three-year controlled study was recently completed to compare polyacrylamide soil treatment to the traditional cover method using agricultural straw on high severity burned soils of the Red Bull Fire, ...
