Covering as much as 15% of the land area in 5 states—Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah—pinyon-juniper woodlands provide a wealth of resources and ecosystem services, from wildlife habitat and vegetative cover for watershed. Pinyon-juniper ecosystems are distributed throughout the western United States and are broadly defined as including one species of pinyon pine (subsection cembroides) and/or one species of juniper (section Sabina).

The majority of the pinyon-juniper type is found in regions subject to temperature extremes and limited moisture availability. Pinyon-juniper generally occurs between. Location and Distribution. Pinyon-juniper (Pinus spp.-Juniperus spp.) communities occupy areas in 10 states of the Great Basin (to 42°N), the Colorado Plateau, the Rocky Mountains, and the Sonoran and Chihuahuan Deserts (Figure 1).It extends southward to the states of Jalisco and Puebla in Mexico (to 18°N).

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC) reports with “very high confidence” that terrestrial biological systems on all continents are now being affected by temperature increases, resulting in earlier spring events, shifts in the ranges of plant and animal species, and longer thermal growing seasons, among.

Pinyon–juniper woodland, also spelled piñon–juniper woodland, is a vegetation type of Western United States higher elevation deserts, characterized by being an open forest dominated by low, bushy, evergreen junipers (Juniperus osteosperma, Juniperus californica, Juniperus grandis), pinyon pines (Pinus monophylla, Pinus edulis), and their associates which vary from region to region.

Fulé, a b Kristen M. Pearson, a Joseph E. Crouse a a Ecological Restoration Institute, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, AZUSA. Pinyon-juniper woodlands occupy about million hectares in the western United States (Short et al.

These woodlands were generally restricted to sites with shallow, rocky soils. Over the last century, however, trees have become more dense on these sites and have invaded adjacent grasslands.

Because P-J woodlands are so extensive in the western United States and northern Mexico, significant efforts are being made to install effective management prescriptions to meet the challenges of conserving biodiversity and natural resources in a rapidly.

The first few years of this project coincided with an extreme drought in the southwestern United States. The plots span an elevational gradient of about m, and all are on the same parent material and geomorphic surface.

As one of the most abundant and widespread forest types in the Southwest, piñon-juniper woodlands are used to varying degrees by many bat species (Chung-MacCoubrey ; Findley et al.

; Hoffmeister ; Jones ). Because of the uniqueness and rarity of old-growth piñon-juniper, the ancient woodlands of Mesa Verde Country likely provide bats with a combination of roosting and.Lrttle). These woodlands are generally found at m where annual precipitation is em (Springfield ).
