Description
Pipeline construction can disturb land through vegetation removal, soil mixing and compaction, and destruction of biological crusts (microorganisms, lichen, moss). Most efforts to restore native rough fescue after pipeline construction through soil replacement and/or rough fescue seeding have been unsuccessful. To overcome this, recent techniques have focused on reducing total grassland disturbance during pipeline construction. This research examines the natural recovery of rough fescue grassland following minimum disturbance pipeline construction techniques.
