Abstract/Contents:Profiles Sabrina Ruis, University of Wisconsin-Madison turf program graduate student. Provides background on her childhood and education where agriculture was a main focus. Discusses her graduate school interests that were listed on her application, noting her interest in evaluating the abundance of Kentucky bluegrass in remnant tall grass prairies. Notes that "the bluegrass study seeks to correlate Kentucky bluegrass presence or absence with soil type, prairie size, and history of management, as well as determining its general abundance in prairies." Mentions that the second project targets the carbon sequestration potential of Kentucky bluegrass when established, and reports that the information collected will apply to laws, golf courses, and roadsides for turf establishment. States that "I have enjoyed this past year of research and look forward to the next year and a half of research experiences to complete my Master of Science degree. I hope the research I am doing will help provide answers towards achieving more sustainability in sod production and determining the invasiveness of Kentucky bluegrass."
