Webinar Description:

Wiregrass (Aristida beyrichiana/stricta) plays a keystone role in the ecosystem health of imperiled longleaf pine savannas of the southeastern USA. It promotes the grass-fire feedback, provides ecosystem services, and promotes biodiversity. Countless efforts across the region are focused on the restoration of wiregrass on public and private lands. New research conducted in partnership with public land managers is transforming how we understand wiregrass and approach restoration projects. This webinar will discuss the latest research and practical experience from restoration projects. Following the presentation there will be time for audience Q/A with the speakers.
