Lars Brudvig from the MSU Department of Plant Biology presents "Restoration of longleaf pine savannas in the southeastern United States."
Longleaf pine savannas are a fire-maintained ecosystem that form part of the southeast United States Coastal Plain biodiversity hotspot. With only 3% of historical area intact, there is substantial interest in conducting restoration within this ecosystem. I will discuss research conducted by my group to inform these restoration efforts, focusing on understory plant communities within sites with histories of agricultural land use and fire suppression.
