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.
