Genetic variation in Great Plains Juniperus

Publications Posted on: May 12, 2016
Fifth-year analyses of Great Plains Juniperus seed sources indicate eastern redcedar should be collected in east-central Nebraska for use throughout the Great Plains; Rocky Mountain juniper seed should be collected from northwest Nebraska, or central Montana, for planting southward through the Great Plains into west-central Kansas west of the 100th meridian.

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
Cones from 275 Juniperus trees were collected throughout the Great Plains from 1973 to 1976 and then sown and grown in a nursery in Nebraska in August of 1977. In 1980 the 2-year old seedlings were distributed to plantations across the Great Plains.

Past studies of forest disturbance traditionally have focused on biomass loss, e.g., blowdown in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, gypsy moth infestation, the impacts of Hurricanes Hugo and Katrina.

Plant community diversity and composition provide little resistance to Juniperus encroachment

Publications Posted on: February 02, 2009
Widespread encroachment of the fire-intolerant species Juniperus virginiana L. into North American grasslands and savannahs where fire has largely been removed has prompted the need to identify mechanisms driving J. virginiana encroachment. We tested whether encroachment success of J. virginiana is related to plant species diversity and composition across three plant communities. We predicted J.

Juniper seed sources in the Great Plains

Publications Posted on: December 27, 2007
At age 10, 100% of eastern redcedar ( L.) and Rocky Mountain juniper ( Sarg.) trees from several seed sources throughout the Great Plains had survived. Seed sources from southeastern Texas had the poorest survival. Eastern redcedar trees from Kansas seed sources grew tallest, and trees from Montana and southeastern Texas seed sources were the shortest.
