Discerning Agronomic Best Management Practices for the Bioenergy Crop Camelina: A Focus on Water Requirements, Sowing Date and Method, and Nitrogen Application Rate in the Semiarid Environment of Northern Nevada
The increasing global demand for food and energy has stimulated multiple innovations and adaptive strategies to optimize agricultural productivity in semiarid regions of the world. However, water availability for agricultural ...
Evaluation of ten genotypes for leaf physiological performance under a simulated heat wave
Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) sensitivity to high temperatures is an impediment to adoption in regions prone to heat waves, despite quinoa being a highly resilient crop to a wide range of abiotic stresses. Although ...
Post-Wildfire Vegetation Response on Diverse Rangelands in Northeast California: Does Livestock Grazing Management Matter?
Wildfires are increasing in size and frequency and are affecting federal lands used for livestock grazing across the western United States. A recommended approach to post-wildfire grazing policy is to rest fire-affected ...
Watershed-scale controls on riparian vegetation distribution and dynamics: Impacts of geomorphology, climate, and disturbance
Riparian ecosystems provide critical services in semi-arid landscapes, but they are vulnerable to degradation. Fluvial landforms, depth to groundwater, and substrate type influence reach-scale riparian vegetation patterns. ...
Rates and Controls of Greenhouse Gas Fluxes in the Great Basin, USA
Soils are important sources and sinks of methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), two greenhouse gases with global warming potentials 30 and 300 times greater than carbon dioxide, respectively. However, soil CH4 and N2O ...
Cheatgrass die-off in the Great Basin: A comparison of remote sensing detection methods and identification of environments favorable to die-off
Invasion by cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum L.) has greatly damaged the rangeland ecosystems of the Western United States. While mechanical and chemical control of cheatgrass is possible, control is costly and often ineffective ...
Above and belowground carbon stocks differ among meadow vegetation communities in the northern Sierra Nevada, California USA
AbstractWhile they cover a relatively small geographic area, montane meadows are hotspots of soil carbon (C) and are characterized by diverse vegetation communities. Estimates of C stocks in meadows could be improved by ...
