Addressing dynamic issues with diverse expertise
An interdisciplinary team of researchers across the Texas A&M University System recently received grant funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture for research, education and outreach relating to grassland revitalization in Texas.
The grant provided $364,854 in funding to create the Restore Texas Grasslands Revitalization Partnership—an initiative of researchers and faculty from Texas A&M AgriLife Research, Tarleton State University and the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, BRIT.
This partnership aims to create a synergistic, interdisciplinary program, which focuses on building capacity within the Texas A&M University System and reaching external stakeholders to foster education, research and outreach programs relating to the sustainable management of grassland ecosystems in Texas.
“Texas A&M AgriLife is committed to supporting our natural environment through 21st century education, research and extension to all Texans,” said Patrick Stover, Ph.D., vice chancellor of Texas A&M AgriLife, dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and director of AgriLife Research. “This project demonstrates the commitment of Texas A&M to developing solutions to environmental challenges faced by our communities through ecology and natural resource management.”
