Altered moisture regimes

Hemlock Woolly Adelgid induced mortality of eastern hemlock influences timing and magnitude of streamflow from headwater catchments in the southern Appalachians

Poster Number:  383 Presenter/Primary Author:  Steven Brantley Eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis (L.) Carr.), an important evergreen canopy species in the southern Appalachian Mountains, is currently experiencing widespread mortality from hemlock wool

Climate variability, land use, disturbance regimes, and water supplies in a Rocky Mountain ecosystem

Poster Number:  357 Presenter/Primary Author:  Patrick Bourgeron Our study areas include portions of the Niwot Ridge Long Term Ecological Research site and Boulder Creek, which is representative of the Colorado Front Range, where population increased by 30% from

Iron redox cycling: unexplored mechanisms for soil organic matter decomposition

Poster Number:  341 Presenter/Primary Author:  Whendee Silver Iron (Fe) oxide minerals have long been known to protect soil organic carbon (C) from microbial decomposition, especially in humid tropical soils abundant in both Fe and C.

Microbial functional response to altered precipitation timing and duration – implications for the soil carbon cycle

Poster Number:  331 Presenter/Primary Author:  Lydia Zeglin A significant amount of carbon (C) is processed and stored in prairie soils: grasslands cover 6.1-7.4% of the earth’s land surface and hold 7.3-11.4% of global soil C.
