Can summer watering to flush annuals reduce exotic cover in restored grasslands?

Hi all,

This is a link to a research project in which I manipulated timing and intensity of watering to see if summer watering in an already restored grassland could cause a flush of annual grass weeds, and subsequently reduce weed challenges in the following growing season.  This talk was given in May at the Society for Ecological Restoration – California (SERCAL) conference.

Summer Watering

Here are all the 2014 abstracts, and you will find mine in the Upland Habitat Restoration & Management technical session on page 26 of this PDF:

Enjoy, and feel free to contact me with questions at kmwolf[AT]ucdavis.edu (replace [AT] with the @ symbol). Thanks!!
