Working with the National Park Service's Center for Urban Ecology, we will obtain local seed from stiltgrass populations and determine growth and see production utilizing a range of nitrogen deposition rates and carbon dioxide concentrations under glasshouse and growth chamber conditions Data will be utilized in a multiple regression model in order to ascertain whether human induced changes in macroclimate near the D.C. area will contribute to the peniciousness of this invasive species.
