About this title

Synopsis:

A major scientific contribution to our understanding of the ecology of Nevada, this book documents the distribution of all native conifer species in the state. This information is important due to the primary ecological importance of conifers for all organisms.

About the Author:

David Charlet received his B.S. and M.S. in Biology and his Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology from the University of Nevada, Reno. He currently is a Professor at the Community College of Southern Nevada in the Las Vegas Valley where he teaches 10 biology and environmental science classes each year. David Charlet's research is acutely focused on the natural history of the Great Basin and Mojave Desert. Dr. Charlet has worked in more than 275 of Nevada's 314 named mountain ranges, and mapped and wrote a reference book on the conifers of Nevada. Results of some of his Nevada research were showcased in 2000 at UC Berkeley where he was invited to speak about this at the 50th anniversary of the University and Jepson Herbaria. Dr. Charlet mapped the vegetation of the Carson Range and much of the eastern Sierra Nevada under a National Performance Review grant sponsored by Vice President Gore's Committee on Reinventing Government. More recently, he has worked on several projects in Clark County Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Plan. In 2002, David gave a speaking tour in China where he was an invited speaker at an international symposium and also spoke at academic institutions in Shanghai and Beijing. In 2003, Dr. Charlet worked with the USGS and National Park Service in leading the field crews to map the vegetation and fuels of the greater Great Basin National Park ecosystems. During his sabbatical in 2004, David went on a botanical collecting expedition to Iran funded by the National Geographic Society. There, he collected plants with a team of US botanists led by the University of California, Berkeley in the vast Iranian desert and in the Alborz and Zagros Mountains. David also annotated conifers in the herbaria of Tehran and Esfahan Universities, and lectured at Tehran and Guilan Universities, and has begun research and education collaborations with Iranian botanists and forest ecologists. David relentlessly brings his research experience into his classroom lectures, and recently was the editor and lead author of a textbook used in introductory environmental science classes.
