Research Project: Precipitation Manipulations in Diverse and Simple Grasslands

Location: Grassland, Soil and Water Research Laboratory

Project Number: 3098-11220-007-10
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: May 01, 2012
End Date: Aug 31, 2015

Identify mechanisms controlling interannual variability in biomass production in diverse and simple grasslands.

Establish experimental treatments manipulating the precipitation seasonality and interannual variability in switchgrass monocultures and in mixed-species prairie, and measure responses in above- and below-ground productivity, nitrogen cycling, plant species composition, and plant ecophysiology.
