Linking the near- surface camera-based phenological metrics with leaf chemical and spectroscopic properties

Poster Number:  398 Presenter/Primary Author:  Jim Tang Plant phenology is an important indicator of climate change.

Organic matter contribution and decomposition by ectomycorrhizal fungi in response to chronic nitrogen deposition in a temperate mixed-hardwood forest

Poster Number:  248 Presenter/Primary Author:  Jesse Sadowsky Ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungi comprise a large proportion of total soil microbial biomass, contribute belowground inputs as mycelia that may equal or surpass those of roots, and secrete enzymes that

Temperate Forest Soils Sequester as much Carbon as Trees in Response to Nitrogen Deposition

Poster Number:  220 Presenter/Primary Author:  Serita Frey The terrestrial biosphere sequesters up to a third of annual anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions, offsetting a substantial portion of greenhouse gas forcing of the climate system.  While a

Soil metatranscriptomics of a temperate forest under increased nitrogen deposition; expression of transcripts encoding lignocellulolytic enzymes

Poster Number:  219 Presenter/Primary Author:  Linda Van Diepen Fungi are ubiquitous in terrestrial ecosystems and play an important role in biogeochemical cycling because of their function as litter decomposers.

Phenology of belowground carbon allocation in a mid-latitude forest

Poster Number:  160 Presenter/Primary Author:  Rose Abramoff Annual forest productivity and carbon storage are affected by the amount and timing of carbon allocated belowground. Despite clear relationships between some climate factors (e.g.
