The Toolbox Approach to Enhanced Collaboration, Communication, and Integration in Cross-Disciplinary Research

Poster Number:  288 Presenter/Primary Author:  Michael O'Rourke Cross-disciplinary research entails unique challenges due to differences among researchers’ disciplinary worldviews.

Seasonal variation in xanthophyll-cycle pigments among species with contrasting water use strategies

Poster Number:  287 Presenter/Primary Author:  Shan Kothari Drought is a powerful limitation on photosynthetic rates in plants, as it may force plants to close their stomata at the risk of severe water loss.

Could nitrogen deposition and warmer temperatures make the Rocky Mountain alpine vulnerable to non-native plant species invasions?

Poster Number:  280 Presenter/Primary Author:  Teal Potter While long-term nitrogen deposition and variation in summer temperature directly impact alpine plant community ecology, non-native plant invasions are a possible indirect effect of these factors on
