Drought in California and much of the western United States has been severe enough over the last two decades to be considered a mega-drought, possibly the worst in a millenium.  Prolonged drought such as this reduces agricultural yields, and increases forest mortality and wildfire risk.  Despite

San Francisquito Creek begins in JRBP at the confluence of Bear Creek and the outflow from Searsville Lake. It flows more than 12 miles to the Bay and is unchannelized for nearly half its length.

During the summer of 2009 Rodolfo Dirzo began a long term study of the impact of herbivory by large mammals, principally deer and rabbits, on 3 oak species. For the study, Rodolfo identified 75 pairs of oak seedlings for each of 3 species: Quercus agrifolia, Q.lobata, and Q.

Reducing uncertainties about the role of terrestrial ecosystems in the global carbon cycle requires better understanding of the spatial and temporal variation in biologically-mediated sources and sinks of carbon.

Anoxic microsites are small zones in soil where oxygen is depleted.  Within these microsites, soil carbon is protected from microbial respiration, but the contribution to overall soil carbon protection (anoxic protection) remains poorly understood.

Oaks of central California vary considerably in acorn production from year to year, making them good candidates for determining what factors regulate acorn production and whether trees are synchronized in the ups and downs of their acorn yield.

The Jasper Ridge seismic station (JRSC) was installed in 1994 by a team from Stanford (Robert Kovach, Geophysics), the USGS, and UC Berkeley. It is part of a network of seismic stations in northern and central California maintained and operated by the Berkeley Seismology Lab (BSL).
