University of Georgia Old Laboratory Site


This 113.1-acre (45.8 ha) Set-Aside Area, adjacent to the former location of the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory, is one of the original ten SREL habitat reserves and was selected to complement the old-field habitat/plant succession studies at Field 3-412 (Area #1) and Field 3-409 (Area #28). This relatively disturbed Set-Aside provided field study sites where manipulative research could be carried out on old-fields and radioecology experiments could be conducted in situ. This Set-Aside represents old-field communities that have margins of hardwood hedgerows and plantation pines, neither of which are found in Field 3-412. In addition, this is the only Set-Aside not associated with Carolina bays or ponds that is predominantly in plantation pines, in particular, longleaf pine.
