Dr. Chelse Prather (Radford University) is studying the mechanisms that control variation in the plant and herbivore communities in prairie landscapes. Read more about Dr. Prather’s research at https://chelseprather.wordpress.com/.
Dr. Christopher Gabler is studying the factors that affect invasion by Chinese Tallow into restored prairie sites, and the effects of wildfire on germination and recruitment of Chinese tallow tree from seed banks. Read more about the Dr. Gabler’s research at http://nsmn1.uh.edu/steve/.
Dr. Evan Siemann (Rice University) and collaborators in China are using the UHCC to understand the mechanisms promoting rapid spread of invasive Chinese tallow in the United States, the consequences of tallow invasion into coastal prairies, and possible methods to restore sites invaded by tallow. Read more about the Dr. Siemann’s research at http://www.ruf.rice.edu/~siemann/index.html.
