Nevada Rangelands: Research and Education

University of Nevada, Reno Rangelands Theses and Dissertations 1939 - 2003

Research on or about rangelands has been conducted at the University of Nevada Reno for well over 50 years. The following are theses from the University of Nevada, Reno about rangeland resource issues. This list, while extensive, may not include all theses. The list was developed by searching the Library catalog of the University of Nevada, Reno for all theses. The search result was reviewed to identify those theses whose titles indicated the thesis occurred on rangelands or pastureland and addresses a rangeland issue (e.g., plant growth, wildlife) or a historical aspect of rangelands. The following list is an initial effort to document the history of rangeland research in Nevada and improve the availability of the information to land managers and citizens who can use the research results.
