INRC Research Seminar Series: Linking Soil Health to Improved Water Quality Via the Planting of Cover Crops in Two Indiana Watersheds

Wednesday, May 26, 2021 - 3:00pm

Presenter: Jennifer Tank, Galla Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences and director of the Environmental Change Initiative at Notre Dame.

Tank's research focuses on the cycling of nutrients in streams and river with an emphasis on the restoration of ecosystem function in impacted systems. She leads a multidisciplinary group of researchers examining the effect of agricultural land use on freshwater as part of the Indiana Watershed Initiative. Her research is helping to quantify the water quality benefits of agricultural conservation practices through watershed-scale implementation of effective practices.
