Research Topic: "Effects of Climate Variability and River Management on the Growth of Invasive Tamarisk Shrubs: A Tree-Ring Study"

Abstract: Tamarix is a non-native, invasive species that has negative effects on riparian environments. This study will explore the relationships between variability, hydrologic processes, and Tamarix growth. Research will be conducted using samples previously collected from the Grand. Regression analysis will be used to develop predictive models for Tamariz diameter growth. Results of this study will help us to understand involved in how this species is able to successfully invade riparian plant communities.
