UC Oaks provides science-based information on California’s oak woodland ecology, management, and conservation. It is a repository of over 30 years of science-based research and outreach conducted during 1986 to 2010 by the UC Integrated Hardwood Range Management Program (IHRMP), a collaboration among the University of California, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
