Jared and Marko receive grant to study early snow melt at the Niwot LTER

The focus of the Growing Length Experiment is to examine how terrain-related differences in climate exposure influence the way different alpine habitats respond to climate change via earlier snow melt.

Manuscript accepted at Ecology

In collaboration with Chris Catano, Joe LaManna and Jonathan Myers we synthesized recent advances in trait-based ecology and biogeography to provide a framework that considers how differences in species-pool functional diversity (SPFD) across biogeographic regions and changes in SPFD through time within regions influence the relative importance of community assembly mechanisms and patterns of biodiversity.

Great work by Marina LaForgia leading this project! Over 22,000 seedlings identified from seedbank! Seeds of exotic annual grasses declined sharply in abundance during the drought while seeds of native annual forbs increased

Blog has moved to Rapid Ecology

I stopped my blog and joined RapidEcology - a public venue for ecologists to have a voice. Please consider contributing. All are welcome! I will be running a series called "How I Work" where people at different career stages share their productivity tips.
