NutNet and DragNet

Through plots at the MSU Kellogg Biological Station, we are part of the Nutrient Network (NutNet) and Disturbance and Resources Across Global Grasslands( DragNet). These globally-replicated experiments test the roles of nutrient availability, mammalian consumers, and soil disturbances for grassland plant communities worldwide.
