ted landscapes as well as the implications of change on surface water and groundwater, wildlife habitat, and livestock grazing.

Title: Does Community-Based Rangeland Ecosystem Management Increase the Resilience of Coupled Systems to Climate Change in Mongolia?
PI: Maria Fernandez-Gimenez, Colorado State University

Summary: This project will examine how local resource-management institutions may contribute to resilience and enable communities to adapt more successfully to climate change. The researchers will assess the vulnerability of pastoral social-ecological systems to climate change in Mongolia by focusing on the operation of more than 2,000 community-based rangeland management organizations that have formed in the last decade.

Title: Hydrology, Ecology, and Pastoral Societies in the Sahel: Ephemeral and Perennial Water Resources in a Dynamic Coupled System
PI: Niall Hanan, South Dakota State University

Summary: Researchers will study changes that have altered the interaction of vegetation, surface-water flow, and human activity in the Sahel region of Africa, a region that has experienced frequent droughts and considerable year-to-year uncertainty in availability of both fodder and surface water for cattle. The scientists will provide new insights into the complex interactions and feedbacks among climate, vegetation dynamics, landscape hydrology, and the human societies that depend on and manage these systems.

Title: Removal and Restoration: Social, Economic and Ecological Dynamics of Invasive Spartina in San Francisco Bay
PI: Alan Hastings, University of California-Davis

Summary: This project will integrate biological, mathematical, economic, and political science tools to answer interrelated questions about the invasive Eastern smooth cordgrass (Spartina spp) in San Francisco Bay. The researchers will develop models that will apply to a wide range of systems where an invasive species ca
