About BromeCast

We formed this network in 2017 to develop an NSF proposal and (now funded) project designed to test our ability to predict the future trajectory of the B. tectorum invasion in western North America under rapid climate change. The idea is to test the predictive value of information about genetic variation, competitive interactions, and phenology/physiology. We have modeled BromeCast on existing research networks such as the Nutrient Network. Participants will contribute seeds and demographic observations from their local sites in return for involvement on synthetic manuscripts and access to the complete data set.
