End Date: Aug 31, 2017
Complete a study in Kenya on soil-plant-animal relationships at landscape to regional scales that will provide the foundation for the initial implementation of the LPKS. We will identify an area with similar soils, rainfall and general vegetation structure to areas in the southwestern US. Then develop a suite of experiments and observational studies designed to adapt and apply ecological site and state-and-transition model concepts to areas with limited traditional soil survey information.
