The relationships between SOM quality and decomposition across a gradient of increasing shrub abundance in the Alaskan Arctic

Poster Number:  325 Presenter/Primary Author:  Jennie DeMarco Warming arctic temperatures are shifting dominant vegetation from graminoids to deciduous shrubs whose functional traits can alter the quality of soil organic matter (SOM) via litter inputs and roo

Fungal and bacterial pathways along a gradient of climate and productivity

Poster Number:  319 Presenter/Primary Author:  Samantha Colby A primary distinction among soil food webs is based on fungal versus bacterial pathways of decomposition; these are expected to differ between meadows and forests.

Changes in invertebrate communities along a natural elevational climate gradient at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, New Hampshire, USA

Poster Number:  314 Presenter/Primary Author:  Lynn Christenson Warmer winters associated with climate change are predicted to decrease snow cover and increase soil freezing.

The effects of extreme heat and drought on a tallgrass prairie ecosystem

Poster Number:  310 Presenter/Primary Author:  David Hoover Climate extremes, such as heat waves and drought, are expected to increase in their frequency and intensity over the next century.  We examined the responses of the tallgrass prairie ecosystem
