investigate the effects of fertilization on the relative growth of understory vegetation on clear%cut and undisturbed sites. The primary objective was to discern if the dramatic in- creases in Carex pensylvanica following disturbance (e.g., fire and clear-cutting) were in part due to its ability to exploit newly available nutrient resources. Understory (founded in as WInstruments) is a company that forecasts weather and collects data using a grid of weather-sensing hardware that tracks weather from the ground level.. History. Although originally known as WInstruments, founder and CEO Alex Kubicek changed the company name to Subsidence and joined Gener8tor, a group in Madison, Wisconsin that provides funding to startups.

The objectives of the project are to enhance the survival of coastal plant species planted to stabilize recently restored wetlands. This research will provide a more complete understanding of environmental requirements so that appropriate plant species can be selected for planting. This research will also seek to the development of practical management practices that enhance rapid. The lack of photosynthesis responses C. concinna to N suggests that photosynthesis may be mediated by limitation of other resources than N, most likely P on these highly weathered soils, or low light availability in the understory, which may have restricted responses of the seedlings to added N, as has been shown in other studies (Andersen et Cited by:

Understory vegetation plays a vital role in regulating soil carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) characteristics due to differences in plant functional traits.
Different understory vegetation types have been reported following aerial seeding. While aerial seeding is common in areas with serious soil erosion, few studies have been conducted to investigate changes in soil C and N cycling as affected by Cited by: 5.

The understory is the warm, damp, and sheltered layer below the leafy tree canopy. Rain drips through the canopy, but only speckled sunlight gets through.
Large-leafed shrubs that are suited to the warmth, shade, and moisture grow here. Smaller trees grow in patches of sunlight. Predicting future impacts of anthropogenic change on tropical forests requires a clear understanding of nutrient constraints on productivity.
