Building precipitation manipulation plots in a common garden

three scientists connect PVC pipes in a common garden

Detailed Description

The scientists are running PVC pipes that will irrigate plants in a common garden. A common garden is where plants are grown in a common environment to experimentally test different environmental effects. The irrigation system allows the scientists to simulate different precipitation patterns, testing the plants' responses to potential future climate scenarios.
