Grassland Studies offers fall lecture series

The 19th annual fall seminar series offered by UNL’s Center for Grassland Studies will include lectures on topics ranging from use of crop residues in beef production systems and what we are learning from the 2012 Niobrara fire to turf care during the 2013 U.S. Senior Open Championship and greenhouse gas emissions from managed grasslands.

The seminars, which may be taken for academic credit and are also free and open to the public, are held most Mondays during the fall semester from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the East Union (room posted).

The series features Anthony Joern, this year’s Frank and Margaret Leu distinguished lecturer. Joern, formerly with UNL’s School of Biological Sciences, is a distinguished professor in the Division of Biology and also co-director of the Institute for Grassland Studies at Kansas State University. He will address the impacts of fire, grazing and climate interactions on tallgrass prairie.

The next lecture, “Soil Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Managed Grasslands in Eastern Nebraska,” by Virginia Jin, USDA, is Sept. 9.
