We mutually agree for Georgianne Moore to deliver the following during the period of July 1, 2006 to June 30, 2007, using funds from the Rio Grande Basin Initiative:
- Ranking of four prospective biological control agents for Arundo according to their ability to reduce physiological activity, specifically growth and transpiration.
- Methodology for scaling leaf-level gas exchange measurements to the whole plant and stand scale in the plant, Arundo donax.
- In situ scaled transpiration estimates of daily water loss per unit area in a dense Arundo stand.
