Title: Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER)/CDR018: Plant Competition Under Different Nitrogen Levels at Cedar Creek Natural History Area
Description:
Abstract:
LTER - Long-Term Ecological Research Program/Cedar Creek Natural History Area (CDR) LTER/CDR018 [Summary adapted from the LTER Core Data Set Catalog]: This is the new garden plot experiment located next to the CDR014 gardens. This garden contains monocultures of major grass species from across the grassland biome of North America, and also three legume species (CDR020). The design and purpose are similar to CDR014, except the plots are larger. The basic experimental design consists of growing plants in monoculture and in various competitive combinations on each of 14 different soil mixtures. Each soil mixture has 26 subplots. Each subplot, which is 1.2 m x 1.2 m, is a unique treatment. Thus, there are no replicates of a treatment within a soil mixture. Rather, the experiment is a regression experiment, with the regression variable being the experimentally imposed level of total soil nitrogen. At the time the seeds were planted, each plot was fertilized with a mixture of P, K, Ca, Mg, and trace metals. Plots 1 through 23 were planted with different combinations of the following species: Schizachyrium scoparium, Andropogon gerardi, Bouteloua gracilis, Panicum virgatum, Agropyron smithii, and Buchloe dactyloides. A belowground gopher fence and an aboveground rodent/deer fence was built around the area. Proprietary limits: Investigators have priority over data for five years, but are interested in collaboration for novel comparisons before then. The Cedar Creek Natural History Area (CCNHA) is a 2200 hectare experimental ecological reserve operated by the University of Minnesota in cooperation with the Minnesota Academy of Sciences. CCNHA is located in Anoka and Isanti Counties north of Minneapolis/St. Paul. The site was established in 1940, was designated a National Natural Landmark by the National Park Service in 1975. In 1977 it was included as an Experimental Ecology Reserve in a proposed network, and in 1982 it was one of 11 sites in the U.S. selected by the National Science Foundation for funding of LTER.
