Summary

Delivering adequate water supplies to support expanding human enterprise while maintaining the necessary flow regimes to support desired riparian ecosystems and formally protected wildlife species that depend upon them is increasingly difficult in the arid western United States. Many riparian systems have undergone dramatic alteration over the last 50 - 100 years, exacerbating the conflicts between resource use and biodiversity protection. One of the most visible changes that is in part due to altered flow regimes is the establishment of invasive plant species in riparian ecosystems. The highest priority invasive riparian plant is the Eurasian tree/shrub, tamarisk (or saltcedar, Tamarix spp.) the third most abundant woody species in [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this project is to test whether climate warming amplifies the deleterious impacts of herbivory by the tamarisk leaf beetle on tamarisk trees; test for an association between plant genotype and resistance to drought, herbivory, and/or the interaction of drought and herbivory; and determine whether expanding beetle populations display shifts in reproductive phenology that will facilitate their spread below Lake Mead, and enhance their impacts to tamarisk.
