Flagstaff Chapter meeting April 20, 2021 – Ashley Hall – Yellow Bluestem (Bothriochloa ischaemum): An Encroaching Invasive Grass Webinar

April 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MST

Ashley Hall

Yellow Bluestem (Bothriochloa ischaemum) is a perennial grass introduced to the United States from Europe and Asia in the early 1900s as a way to control erosion and as a forage species. In the past several years, this species has become an emerging invasive in Arizona, negatively affecting the habitats it invades in many ways including economically, environmentally, and/or ecologically.

Ashley Hall received her B.Sc. in Rangeland Ecology and Management with a minor in Geographic Information Systems from the University of Arizona (UA) in 2009 and a M.Sc. 2011. After finishing her M.Sc., Ashley began working for UA Cooperative Extension (UACE) as a Research Specialist for the Cooperative Rangeland Monitoring Program assisting the Bureau of Land Management in establishing a vegetation monitoring protocol. She is currently UACE Faculty working in Gila and Pinal Counties, focusing on Rangeland Management and Animal Science programming.
