    About This Project

    Once common, prairies are now among the most threatened of ecosystems. Restoration of prairies without intense management is challenging. Introducing native parasitic plants can reduce aggressive species but broader effects of hemiparasites (green parasitic plants) on invasions and productivity are unknown. Our goal is to evaluate species composition and environmental factors in prairies with native hemiparasites to understand these effects and provide critical insights to land managers.
