Job: MS or PHD position - Landscape Ecology

Graduate Assistantship: Wetland Ephemerality and Biodiversity Patterns. Recruiting a MS or PhD graduate fellow to investigate how long-term changes in climate will impact wetlands (distribution, abundance, water quality) and biodiversity in range systems. This position will be part of a team of students addressing complimentary (but independent) questions.  The effects of climate change are critically important in semi-arid systems where water is the ultimate limiting factor. Water availability is predicted to decrease across rangelands regardless of precipitation due to temperature-related increases in vegetative evapotranspiration rates. In addition, annual water supply in high elevation systems is dependent on spring snowmelt from the mountains which may be significantly impacted by shifts in precipitation timing. Water shortage has negative consequences for both biodiversity and human resource use.
