BLM REA COP 2010 1965 tamarisk point data for the Sonoran Desert ecoregion, USA


Identification Information:
Description:
Abstract: 1965 tamarisk point data for the Colorado Plateau ecoregion, USA Over the past 100 years, species of non-native tamarisk (Tamarix spp.) have invaded perhaps hundreds of thousands of acres in riparian zones and desert washes throughout the semi-arid, west and southwest United States (Robinson 1965, Cleverly et al. 1997). Large stands of tamarisk transpire vast amounts of precious water supplies, negatively alter soil chemistry, and out-compete native plant species (Zimmerman 1997, Di Tomaso 1998, Smith et al. 1998, Zavaleta 2000). Tamarisk is a prolific seeder, consummate resprouter, and is fire tolerant. Tamarisk has negative effects on many wildlife species, but it can act as marginal replacement habitat for some bird species, including the federally endangered native Southwestern Willow Flycatcher, though native riparian species such as cottonwoods, box elder, and willows would be more suitable habitat in the long term (DeLoach et al. 2003). Disruptions of the natural flow regimes and hybridization may be partly responsible for the spread and dominance of tamarisk in some areas, but additional research is needed for many aspects of tamarisk ecology (Schaal et al. 2003). One of the greatest limiting factors in understanding and controlling tamarisk is the lack of a detailed, high resolution map of tamarisk distribution and abundance relative to biologic, geographic and hydrologic conditions.
Purpose: To support the BLM REA process
