  • Rangeland Scientist, US Forest Service
Stephanie Yelenik is a Rangeland Scientist with the Rocky Mountain Research Station, US Forest Service. She is interested in plant-ecosystem interactions and how these alter the trajectory of plant communities that are under diverse anthropogenic threats, including invasive species, increased wildfire regimes, and climate change. She combines ecological theory with empirical, field-based experiments to address problems that have application to habitat management and restoration. Her work in restoration ecology and invasive species impacts has spanned arid shrubland to wet forest habitats in California, Hawaiʻi, Nevada, and South Africa.
