Abstract

This poster is a summary of the work I have done for my master's thesis. The goal of this research was to treat new prairie plantings in roadside rights-of-way with a plentiful source of supplemental seed in order to satiate seed predators. The goal of satiating predators was to reduce predation on prairie seed, improving seedling establishment of the planted species.

Effects of Predator Satiation on Seed Predation in New Roadside Prairie Plantings

This poster is a summary of the work I have done for my master's thesis. The goal of this research was to treat new prairie plantings in roadside rights-of-way with a plentiful source of supplemental seed in order to satiate seed predators.
