The Recovery Strategies for Industrial Development in Native Grasslands project is a multi-stakeholder initiative to provide guidance to minimize future impacts, and promote effective reclamation/restoration of past and future disturbances in native grasslands. The purpose of the manuals is to set projects up for success and to provide expectations and understanding of what is required to reach the outcome of restoration over time.
WEBINAR – Quantification of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi associated with native plants in natural and disturbed grasslands. A project update.
Over the past two and a half decades, Canada has lost 25 million acres of grasslands (Nature Canada, 2022). Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) can establish symbiosis with more than 80% of plant families and they are able to improve plant growth through increased uptake of nutrients essential for plant growth, such as available soil phosphorus. AMF can help stabilize soil aggregates, alleviating erosion and improving soil structure and can increase plant tolerance to stress caused by biotic and abiotic factors.
