Native and nonnative riparian species growing in a greenhouse

Detailed Description

A greenhouse experiment where we planted common native and nonnative southwestern riparian plant species to determine how a number of treatments affected their germination and growth. Treatments included adding different heights of Tamarix litter, different heights of wood chips, nutrient additions, salt additions, and leaf litter leachate (spring 2014).
