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...
Mechanisms regulating Poa pratensis L. and Festuca campestris Rybd. within the foothills fescue grasslands of southern AlbertaDownload
Invasion of non-native species such as Poa pratensis L. has become a serious threat to the conservation of bunch grass communities including foothills fescue grasslands in Alberta, Canada. Conservation efforts are currently limited by a poor understanding of the ecological mechanisms responsible...
Festuca hallii (Vasey) Piper (Plains rough fescue) and Festuca campestris RYDB (Foothills rough fescue) Response to Seed Mix Diversity and MycorrhizaeDownload
Rough fescue (Festuca hallii (Vasey) Piper (plains rough fescue) and Festuca campestris Rydb (foothills rough fescue) are long lived perennials that have been difficult to establish on disturbed sites. This research assessed the impact of seed mix diversity and suppression of arbuscular...
