Graduation Year: 

Iris' thesis was entitled \Landscapes in Transition: Private lands oak woodland management in the Klamath-Siskiyou bioregion\" and explored the factors that influence oak woodland management and ecosystem restoration for private landowners in this region. Iris conducted fieldwork and analysis at various sites and surveyed hundreds of private landowners and land managers to obtain data related to oak woodland management and restoration. She hopes to continue this analysis and develop guidelines and criteria for management of remaining oak woodlands which tend to be ecologically significant and biodiverse."
