Titre : INVESTIGATIONS OF COMPETITIVE AND FACILITATIVE ABILITY OF NATIVE ANNUAL FORBS OF THE GREAT BASIN

Identification : 5370-22000-023-06S

Pays : Etats Unis

Durée : Feb 9, 2010 à Dec 1, 2012

Domaine : Watershed Protection and Management ; Management of Range Resources ; Desert and semidesert shrub land and shinnery ; Watersheds ; - Weeds ;

Partenaire : UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA RENO

Objectif
The University of Nevada at Reno is undertaking a cooperative project with the Agricultural Research Service and to investigate (1) the ability of key Great Basin native annual species to compete with cheatgrass as well as (2) their ability to facilitate the establishment of Great Basin native perennial bunchgrasses. The ultimate goal of this project is to assess the suitability of key Great Basin native annual species for use in restoration seedings

Descriptif
The University of Nevada at Reno will assist in developing, implementing, and analyzing experiments to assess the ability of Great Basin native forb species to compete with cheatgrass and facilitate establishment of native perennial grasses. This will include collaborating with ARS on greenhouse and field experiments, as well as the writing of scientific manuscripts
