Presentation Abstract
The 2014 Research Poster will chronicle the work that our research team has been doing in relation to studying species loss of native and socio-economic plants of Jordan through overgrazing/collecting, the loss of water harvesting methods in recent decades due to increased dependence on non-renewable water aquifers and the loss of farmland due to development. Plans for an Agricultural Education Heritage Center have been designed and a narrative of educational exhibits underway to orient hundreds of schoolchildren to Jordan’s plight, bringing a strong sense of conservation to Jordan’s future populace. Outside funding and local participation is making this possible along with Andrews Faculty Research grants and the collaboration between Andrews Agriculture, Architecture and Archaeology at Tel Hisban, Jordan.
