Climate Mitigation Services from Northern Plains Grasslands
November 22, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Biography: Dr. Liebig works with a multidisciplinary team of scientists to develop soil, crop, and animal management practices for the Great Plains to overcome limitations to productivity while maintaining or enhancing environmental quality. As a team member, he leads basic and applied research to quantify management effects on soil properties and associated ecosystem services. In addition to core research responsibilities, Dr. Liebig develops decision aides and evaluation tools for producers, conservationists, and scientists, and regularly contributes to research networks within and outside USDA-ARS.

Presentation: Many grasslands throughout the northern Great Plains of North America possess attributes that support the successful delivery of multiple ecosystem services. Among these services, climate mitigation has generated renewed interest from policymakers, private corporations, and land managers. Robust science-based guidance is needed to provide stakeholders with timely information regarding climate-related benefits from grasslands in the region. This presentation will review topical research outcomes in the northern Great Plains framed in the context of anticipated changes in climate and land use.
