Tamzen Stringham Honored by the International Society for Range Management

Tamzen K. Stringham, a rangeland and riparian ecologist at the University of Nevada, Reno, received the Sustained Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Society for Range Management. She is the first woman to earn the award.

The International Society for Range Management is the professional scientific society and conservation organization whose members study, conserve, manage and sustain the varied resources of the rangelands, which include prairie, shrublands, woodlands, and savannahs that cover nearly half the land on earth.

“I am honored to be the first woman, in the 75-year history of the Society for Range Management, to receive the Sustained Lifetime Achievement Award,” Dr. Stringham said. “I guess it takes perseverance and graciousness to crack the glass ceiling, but it has been worth it for every young woman following in my footsteps.”

Professor Stringham has taught at the University of Nevada Reno since 2008 and has been a member of the International Society for Range Management for 29 years. She is a graduate of California State University, Chico and holds a master’s degree and a Ph.D. from Oregon State University.
