Research Project: MODELING YELLOW STARTHISTLE BIOCONTROL

Location: Exotic and Invasive Weeds Research

Project Number: 2030-22000-024-01
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 26, 2010
End Date: Dec 31, 2013

Objective:
1. Complete statistical analysis on yellow starthistle field study. 2. Complete computer model parameterization. 3. Complete journal articles on joint research.

Approach:
1. Field data collected during 2007 and 2008 will be statistically evaluated and summary graphics prepared. 2. Statistically significant biological parameters will be developed and incorporated into an existing hermes model of yellow starthistle growth. 3. Both field data on yellow starthistle growth and model development and application will be published in peer reviewed journals. Documents Grant with UC Santa Cruz.
