Scott E Shaff

I am an Ecologist with the USGS Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science Center. I manage field logistics, site management, data management, data analysis, and manuscript preparation for the SageSTEP project. I also assist the Aquatic and Landscape Ecology Research Team with field logistics and data management.  

My research experience spans forested and desert shrubland ecosystems across the west.  My research interests include restoration ecology of native plants on disturbed and invaded lands and long term effects of fuel reduction treatments on sagebrush and western juniper woodland ecosystems. Outside of work I enjoy trail running, mountain biking, and section hiking the PCT.
