Research

What the College does at the University of Nevada, Reno matters beyond our own campus. It is about focusing the College's limited resources toward solving urgent and vital problems Nevadans face. Our stakeholders’ greatest problems are not waiting for the right time to be solved; they are waiting for the right people to solve them. Those people are here.

Extension & Outreach

Extension serves more than 100,000 Nevadans annually through a network of specialists, agents and staff by providing unbiased, research-based information driven by local needs and clientele input. From publications to in-person workshops and events, Extension is ready to meet the needs of the state and its communities.

Great Basin Sagebrush Restoration Fund

Sagebrush ecosystems have eroded to about 56 percent of their historical range. These ecosystems provide vital habitat for many iconic species found in the west. The sagebrush ecosystem is one of the most imperiled in the United States. To date, rehabilitation efforts are proving to be costly and do not always provide intended results. There is an opportunity to improve the efficacy and success of rehabilitation efforts.

Arid Lands Research Fund

The purpose of the Fund is to advance research and development of cost-effective methodologies for restoration of degraded arid lands and riparian areas within arid lands.  The team assembled includes the University of Nevada and other institutions with diverse backgrounds in soil science, plant community ecology, natural resource economics, native seed ecology and landscape ecology.
