Poster Number:  262 Presenter/Primary Author:  Samuel Rossabi A two day study performed in March of 2009 found evidence of biogeochemical processes occurring in soil beneath the snowpack at the Soddie site at Niwot Ridge, of Colorado’s Front Range.

A Decade of Bacterial Community Dynamics In Eutrophic Lake Mendota

Poster Number:  260 Presenter/Primary Author:  Robin Rohwer Microbial communities drive the biogeochemical cycling of carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus in lakes, however their community structure and how it changes over time is poorly understood.

Does dispersal matter? Differential seed dispersal patterns in urban vacant lot habitats

Ecology of foreclosure: Post-recession vegetation characteristics of urban landscapes

Poster Number:  253 Presenter/Primary Author:  Julie Ripplinger Often, we think of cities as designed ecosystems, where people are the dominant driving force and manage everything – from the structure of the landscape to the materials it’s composed of, and from

Litterfall N:P ratios increase throughout autumn, suggesting a temporal separation between N and P resorption

Poster Number:  252 Presenter/Primary Author:  Craig See In deciduous forests, autumn leaf fall constitutes the largest annual nutrient input to the forest floor, and is critical to the recycling of nitrogen and phosphorus.
