2023 Update: Liatris fire and flowering

In summer 2021 and summer 2022, we investigated fire effects on Liatris aspera across 30 patches of remnant prairie in Solem Township, MN. We did not collect any new Liatris data in 2023. All harvested samples were processed in the lab during spring 2023. All data has been curated and are analysis-ready.

Had to go back to 2021 to get a Liatris photo, good riddance!
  • Start year: 2021-2022
  • Location: 30 patches of remnant prairie in and around Solem Township, MN
  • Overlaps with: burnRems
  • Data collected: Spatial location, reproductive effort, and reproductive outcomes data have been curated in the remLa repo. All data are analysis ready.
  • Samples or specimens collected: All harvested reproductive material have been processed in the lab. Half of the collected seed was sowed in the recently burned southeast hill at the farm. The other half have been reserved for sowing in P2 (provided it burns in spring 2024).
  • Products: Jared has conducted preliminary analyses. Stay tuned in 2024 for more info!
