Science Café:“Space, Time and Appalachian Grass Balds: Coping with a Riddle and a Conservation Controversy
November 14, 2017 at 07:00 pm • RGWFU Education Wing
A number of the peaks of the Southern Appalachian Mountains support extensive grasslands rather than forests and the presence of unique arrays of light dependent organisms suggests a long history for these habitats. Recently we have proposed a novel and controversial hypothesis involving climate extremes and animal activity to explain the existence of these mountain balds and similar grasslands in other parts of the world.
