We are looking for one or two dedicated students (research for credits or UCARE) to participate in our grass-root microbiome project. In this project, we compare root architecture, root anatomy and associated micro-organisms of 20 native Nebraskan grass species. Taking part in this project includes working with plants in the greenhouse, harvesting their roots, and measuring various functional traits describing root architecture and anatomy.
