Beth Rose’s research centers on Native environmental policy and Native activism for site protection using conservation tools.

Beth Rose received her BA in Nature and Culture from UC Davis, and her Ph.D. in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management from UC Berkeley. Her book, Trust in the Land: New Directions in Tribal Conservation (University of Arizona Press 2011), focuses on Native applications of conservation easements, with an emphasis on conservation partnerships led by California Native Nations. Beth Rose has published on Native economic development in Economic Development Quarterly, on political ecology and healing in the Journal of Political Ecology, on Federal Indian law as environmental policy, and the history of the environmental justice movement in The CQ Guide to US Environmental Policy, on mapping allotment lands in Ethnohistory, on using environmental laws for indigenous rights in Environmental Management, on the application of market-based conservation tools to Garifuna site protection in Caribbean Quarterly, on challenges to cultural site protection in Native California in Human Geography, and on indigenous political ecologies in the International Handbook of Political Ecology. Her new book, "Upstream: Trust Lands and Power on the Feather River," on the history of Indian land rights and hydroelectric development in northeastern California, was published in September 2018 with University of Arizona Press.
