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-A
Project Type: Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Mar 1, 2012
End Date: Jun 30, 2015

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

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.
