Webinar: The incredible diversity of sagebrush chemistry and its potential value in restoration

Webinar recording

Sagebrushes (Artemisia, subgenus Tridentatae) are champion chemists and famous for their abundant and complex volatile bouquets. The chemical make-up of sagebrushes plays important roles in plant fitness and survival and is an unseen but fundamental component of sagebrush habitats. Justin Runyon, Research Entomologist, USFS RMRS, Bozeman, MT, discusses the diversity, distribution, possible functions, and potential use of volatiles in restoration of sagebrush chemistry.
