Biology associate professor Sven Buerki and his team’s sagebrush genome research was featured on KTVB Channel 7 on Aug. 7, 2023 with Andrew Baertlein.

This coverage pertained to the team’s recently published research in Plant-Environment Interactions, “A genotype × environment experiment reveals contrasting response strategies to drought between populations of a keystone species (Artemisia tridentata; Asteraceae).”

This research was conducted with undergraduate students from the Mapping Sagebrush Restoration Vertically Integrated Project.
