* Cris Hochwender and ES/Biology Students Present Restoration Research Project at CEER

Professor of Biology Cris G. Hochwender presented a research poster, in collaboration with three UE students—Samantha Montgomery, Nicole Kreuzman, & Stephanie Tran—at the Conference on Ecological and Ecosystem Restoration (CEER).

Their research was entitled, “Exploring native prairie grasses as competitors to suppress growth of the invasive grass Sorghum halepense.”

CEER is a Collaborative Effort of the leaders of the National Conference on Ecosystem Restoration (NCER) and the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER). The conference brought together scientists, engineers, policy makers, restoration planners, partners, NGO’s and stakeholders from around the world to address challenges and share information about restoration projects, programs, and research from across North America. Across the continent, centuries of unsustainable activities have damaged the aquatic, marine, and terrestrial environments that underpin our economies and societies and give rise to a diversity of wildlife and plants.

This conference supported SER and NCER efforts to reverse environmental degradation by renewing and restoring degraded, damaged, or destroyed ecosystems and habitats for the benefit of humans and nature.
