Botanist to study responses of trees and shrubs to extreme drought in California
California is in its fourth year of drought. As a result, mass mortality of trees and shrubs is happening more quickly than researchers can quantify. Rapid changes in vegetation cover are already leading to loss of biodiversity, opportunities for invasive species, and novel ecosystems with entirely new plant communities. Botanist Louis Santiago at UC Riverside, has now received a grant from the National Science Foundation to study how trees and shrubs respond to extreme drought.
