A Cereal Survives Heat and Drought

An international consortium under the lead of the non-profit organization "International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics" (ICRISAT) and participation of a research team around the system biologist Wolfram Weckwerth has published the genome sequence of Pearl millet, a drought resistant crop plant most important in aride regions in Africa and Asia. This so-called C4 plant is especially important to small and medium farmers who grow the plant without larger irrigation. Pearl millet delivers a good harvest index under drought and heat conditions when rice, maize or wheat already have no grains anymore.

Northern New Mexico Forest Restoration Project Includes Wildlife Study

Areas in the Northern New Mexico Jemez Mountains and Valles Caldera National Preserve have been through prescribed burns or forest thins to allow for a less dense canopy, so new grasses and shrubs may grow and so wildfires will be less destructive. The treatments are part of the Southwest Jemez Collaborative Landscape Restoration Project.
