Agroborealis Research Highlights published

Read about the research conducted by Professors Meriam Karlsson and Dave Verbyla in the newest Agroborealis Research Highlights. One highlight describes greenhouse research by Karlsson — her work with bell pepper production, her analysis of the nutritional value of Alaska-grown vegetables versus those grown outside Alaska, and her studies of how different combinations of LED lights affect production.

A second highlight focuses on Dave Verbyla's remote sensing studies of changing Dall sheep habitat in Alaska, the Northwest Territories, northern British Columbia and the Yukon Territory. His research is part of a four-year study funded by NASA, which will consider how vegetation and snow conditions are changing in alpine ecosystems and how those changes may affect Dall sheep.

Agroborealis is the research publication of the Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station and the School of Natural Resources and Extension. The publication, which was founded in 1969, became available in a new format this spring. Downloadable Highlights are published online twice yearly at www.uaf.edu/snre/agroborealis.

Agroborealis Research Highlights published this spring looked at efforts to develop an early maturing spring wheat and research on how well forest regeneration efforts worked on boreal forestlands in the Interior that were harvested between 1975 and 2004.
