Publication Date:

In this paper, we will provide a brief overview of the major human-induced agents of environmental change and their potential consequences on invasive species. We will also examine invasive species as agents of environmental change. For each agent of environmental change, we will discuss the potential spatial and temporal extent of the agents influence especially as it relates to rangeland management. Using Bromus tectorum (cheatgrass) as an example invasive species, we will examine spatial management options for restoration of native plants in the Great Basin of the U.S.A.
