Assessing Pathways to Potential N2O Emissions in Different Land Use Systems Using Targeted Pyrotag, Whole Metagenome and Soil Assay Approaches

Poster Number:  234 Presenter/Primary Author:  Brendan O'Neill Assessing how microbial communities change under different land management practices is central to understanding how land use affects biogeochemical cycles.  The field of soil molecular and me

A conceptual model for predicting the ecological effects of coastal armoring in soft-sediment environments

Poster Number:  233 Presenter/Primary Author:  Jenifer Dugan Shoreline armoring structures are widely used in soft-sediment environments, ranging from bulkheads and revetments in protected marshes to sea walls on open coast beaches.

Incorporating biotic factors in species distribution modeling: are interactions with soil microbes important?

Poster Number:  232 Presenter/Primary Author:  Cliff Bueno De Me... It is increasingly recognized that species distributions are driven by both abiotic factors and biotic interactions.

Hydrologic controls on biogeochemical gradients in thick layers of flocculent organic sediments in a through-flow wetland

Poster Number:  228 Presenter/Primary Author:  Dustin Kincaid Thick accumulations of flocculent organic sediment, or floc, are nearly ubiquitous in shallow freshwater ecosystems lacking strong physical disturbance regimes.
