Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Oct 1, 2008
End Date: Sep 30, 2013
The objective of this cooperative research project is to develop technologies and plant germplasm for revegetation and plant performance and to improve degraded rangelands and restore ecological function.
Collaborative experiments will be designed and implemented at jointly identified experimental sites in the Great Basin Area of the United States and Inner Mongolia rangelands. Experiments will be patterned after existing experiments to 1) develop and assess the performance of improved rangeland grass and forb species, and; 2) develop cultural methods to more efficiently establish perennial vegetation and to restore ecological function of disturbed rangeland landscapes.
