Description
Native and restored wet meadows are unique ephemeral wetlands that significantly contribute to the biodiversity along the Platte River in central Nebraska. Given their biological importance, it is critical that we are able assess the condition of these wetlands, determine the degree to which restored wet meadows parallel the structure and function of native wet meadows, and evaluate the role land-use practices and restoration techniques play in influencing the condition of wet meadows. This Ph.D. assistantship will contribute to our knowledge about restored and native wet meadows by developing methods for assessing wet meadow condition using invertebrate and plant metrics, assessing the effects of restoration techniques and land-use practices on the condition of wet meadows, and providing recommendations for future conservation and restoration efforts of wet meadows. This project provides a great opportunity to work with a variety of NGO’s as well as state and federal agencies involved with conservation efforts on the Platte River. Anticipated start date is 1 January 2020. Applications should include a cover letter, resume, GRE scores, and list of 3 references. All applications should be emailed to Dr. Craig Davis at craig.a.davis@okstate.edu.
