number of awards: 1
type of funding: Cooperative Agreement
Description:

The object of this funding opportunity is to provide information on the role of genetics as it applies to restoration ecology. The results of this research will guide genetic management of cottonwood restoration projects in two ways: (1) by identifying genetic stocks of Freemont cottonwood trees that possess traits that may include superior growth, reproduction, and survival in a typical restoration site; and (2) by identifying genetic stocks of Freemont cottonwood trees that support diverse biological communities, including communities that sustain target wildlife species.
The type of project that will be funded under this announcement would be for work that will include: (1) preparation of a sound study design, including adequately replicated treatments, genetic prescreening of cottonwood trees, and a long-term monitoring plan; (2) acquisition, rearing, transportation, and planting of cottonwood trees at a study site to be proposed by the applicant (depending on the extent to which the applicant may need federal technical assistance in this area, the extent of such assistance will be negotiated prior to agreement award); (3) study site maintenance; (4) long-term monitoring of tree growth and ecological community parameters providing evidence for genetic fitness of trees and the influence of genetic diversity on community diversity, respectively; (5) preparation of quarterly progress reports and yearly reports including management recommendations. We anticipate that the bulk of the research and research funding will be undertaken by the recipient.
