Ecosystem & Wildlife Implications of Brush Management - US Army Corps of
The State of Texas adopted a program to study and implement brush
management systems across the state to improve the water availability in
streams, rivers, reservoirs and aquifers, as well as to improve the
rangelands. This study focused on assessing the aquatic and terrestrial
species implications related to specified brush management strategies
over time. This involved an integrated analysis including modeling of
the landscape, assessing biological diversity and developing economic
implications for the two watersheds (Twin Buttes and Edwards regions).
Thus, this study is comprised of three parts: modeling of brush
management strategies temporally, assessing biological diversity
(aquatic and terrestrial) and estimating economic implications.
