  • North American Invasive Plant Ecology and Management Short Course
    Steve Young syoung4@unl.edu
    Welcome to the North American Invasive Plant Ecology and Management Short Course (NAIPSC) Online Community! The NAIPSC Online Community houses information about the NAIPSC Field Course, instructors, resources, and future opportunities to increase your knowledge of invasive plants. The 2013-2014 NAIPSC Webinar Series The 2013-2014 NAIPSC Webinar Series is now done. NAIPSC members can view the archived version by logging onto the NAIPSC Online Community. For more information about the NAIPSC Webinar Series and the Online Community, contact Steve Young. 2014 NAIPSC Web Course The first annual NAIPSC WC took place January 22-23, 2014. We had great sessions, good discussion, and no one complained about the food, hotel, or flight delays! If you weren't able to join us, don't worry because we recorded each session and have made them available in an 'archived' version. If you want to watch the sessions, contact Steve Young for details. Invasive Plants: Impacts on Ecosystems Are you interested in more than just how to control invasive plants? Have you had questions about where invasive plants occur and how they are impacting the most pristine to the most degraded ecosystems? Maybe you just want to know what an invasive plant is. If so, then you need to sign up for the all new course entitled, "Invasive Plants: Impacts on Ecosystems". In this 15-week course offered through the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, you'll learn how invasive plants in arid climates are affecting hydrological cycles, the changes below-ground caused by invasive plants, the legacies of invasive plants, and much more. The format of this 3-credit course is similar to other college-level courses, except that the all of the instruction, materials, and activities are located online. You can participate from anywhere to hear the pre-recorded lectures, and be involved in the discussion board and complete the problem sets and other various assignments. To put all of your new found knowledge to use, an optional final project on several topics including land manager interviews, invasive plant spotlights, and creating an educational program will be available. For any professional, researcher, student, or instructor working or teaching in the fields of conservation or land management, this course is for you. No other course is going to teach you the 'why' and 'how' relating to the establishment of invasive plants in terrestrial ecosystems. Find out more by contacting Dr. Steve Young (steve.young@unl.edu) or downloading a brochure. The 2014 course has already begun, but a shorter 5-week version is being developed.

    Making a Gene Library
    This animation shows how to make a colony of new DNA in order to locate a specific gene of interest. This is the third of four animations detailing the gene cloning process. To begin at the beginning, choose Making a Recombinant Plasmid. (The animation prior to this one is Bacteria Transformation. The animation just after this one is Screening a DNA Library.)
Featured Lessons
  • Soils - Part 10: The Scientific Basis for Making Fertilizer Recommendations The Scientific Basis for Making Fertilizer Recommendations: In this lesson, you will gain an understanding of the history of fertilizer use and the ideas behind fertilizer recommendations. Three major crop nutrition concepts will be discussed in terms of their benefits and disadvantages. [This lesson, as well as the other nine lessons in the Soils series, is taken from the "Soils Home Study Course," published in 1999 by the University of Nebraska Cooperative Extension.]
