Project: Global Change Experiment: Responses of Prosopis glandulosa and Bouteloua eriopoda to precipitation change

Project ID: 210409000
Funding Source: LTER V

The project explores the influence of precipitation change on black grama and mesquite ecophysiology. Precipitation is manipulated relative to ambient precipitation with Sala et al's rainout shelters and sprinklers in Pasture 13. Ecophysiological measurements (pre-dawn water potential and photosynthesis) are measured throughout the growing season.
