Research Project: A systems approach to seedling establishment on degraded rangeland:managing ecological processes driving recruitment bottlenecks (UNR LEGER)

Location: Range and Meadow Forage Management Research

Project Number: 2070-22000-004-04
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Mar 01, 2012
End Date: Jun 30, 2015

Objective:
Identify seedling traits from different seed sources that increase probability of seedling establishment.

Approach:
The approach is to collect seed sources from multiple populations, including commercial cultivars and sow seeds and a subset of sites selected in the Great Basin. Populations will be screened for numerous root and shoot physiological and morphological traits.
