The Bowker lab recently contributed a feature article to the Society of Ecological Restoration's newsletter on biocrust restoration. The article can be found here: http://ser.org/resources/sernews/volume-30-issue-3-june-2016/Biocrust
As a complement to the article, members of the Bowker lab will be giving a webinar, sharing progress and plans for restoring biocrusts using the following approach: 1) Develop optimal culturing techniques; 2) Maximize field survivorship; 3) Develop, build and test field delivery mechanisms; and 4) Integrate techniques with current restoration practices.
The webinar will be from Thursday, August 4th, at 4-5pm EDT. Please join us! http://ser.org/resources/resources-detail-view/upcoming-webinar-biocrusts-in-dryland-restoration
