Since 2008, the Minnesota
Department of Natural Resources, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and The Nature Conservancy have collaboratively developed and implemented a
coordinated adaptive management (AM) framework to inventory remnant prairie, evaluate the influence of management actions (prescribed fire,
grazing, and rest) on invasive and native plant communities, and provide management recommendations to land managers. The AM framework was
initially established using expert opinion, but we can now use the 10 years of standardized field data from over 22,000 acres of remnant
prairie to improve management recommendations and accelerate the rate of improvement for our prairies. The post-doctoral associate will be
responsible for working cooperatively with the team at CU Boulder and the Grassland Monitoring leads to update the AM process, based on
analysis of this wealth of acquired data.
