BFL continues work with Drought-Net

We're beginning our second year of work with Drought-Net, a global collaboration to examine community sensitivity to drought. Droughts are expected to not only become more common but also more severe as a result of climate change. By comparing the plant communities under rainout shelters with those outside them, we can get an idea of how vegetation will change in response to drought. Our experimental sites at both Brackenridge Field Lab and Stengl "Lost Pines" Biological Station are a part of a global network containing over 60 sites.  The field labs' contributions to Drought-Net will increase our understanding of the drought sensitivity of ecosystems around the world.
