SWITCHGRASS YIELD AND QUALITY WITH MULTIPLE FERTILIZER APPLICATIONS AND HARVEST DATES
OF THESIS SWITCHGRASS YIELD AND QUALITY WITH MULTIPLE FERTILIZER APPLICATIONS AND HARVEST DATES Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) is an important native warm-season grass for biomass and forageExpand

Heterosis in Switchgrass: Biomass Yield in Swards
TLDR
Heterosis for biomass yield in switchgrass may need the competitive conditions of swards to be fully expressed, and results do provide ample justification for additional research to develop switchgrass population and specific hybrids. Expand
Do individual plant species show predictable responses to nitrogen addition across multiple experiments
TLDR
The responses of individual species to nitrogen addition are often predictable, but that in most cases these responses are functions of the abiotic or biotic environment. Expand

Developing Switchgrass as a Bioenergy Crop
The utilization of energy crops produced on American farms as a source of renewable fuels is a concept with great relevance to current ecological and economic issues at both national and globalExpand
Forces of nature: An environmental history of Inkpaduta's 1857 attack on Spirit Lake
The world in which Inkpaduta grew up in the northern Iowa borderlands rapidly changed during the nineteenth century. As Americans entered Dakota occupied lands, alterations to the environmentExpand
Lower soil carbon stocks in exotic vs. native grasslands are driven by carbonate losses.
TLDR
The results indicate that soil carbonate is an active pool and can respond to differences in plant species traits over timescales of years, and significant losses of inorganic C might be avoided by conserving native grasslands in sub-humid ecosystems. Expand
Resolving the Dust Bowl paradox of grassland responses to extreme drought
TLDR
It is shown that during extreme drought years, precipitation–temperature relationships weaken, and the proportion of precipitation falling during cooler months increases, providing a mechanism for C3 grasses to respond positively to multiyear drought, resolving the Dust Bowl paradox. Expand
Structural diversity and ecosystem-resource relationships in tropical savanna and a legume-cereal intercrop
TLDR
A unifying framework regarding the coupling between ecosystem structure and function is explored, that the capacity of water-limited ecosystems to optimize water use, or resist stress is a product of their life-form diversity. Expand
