Sampling Intensity and Uncertainty in Leaf Litterfall Mass and Nutrient Flux in Northern Hardwoods

Poster Number:  209 Presenter/Primary Author:  Yang Yang Designs for litterfall monitoring can be improved by quantifying uncertainty in litterfall mass and nutrient concentration

Canopy diversity in relation to carbon fluxes, water use and spectral reflectance in North American forests

Poster Number:  197 Presenter/Primary Author:  Scott Ollinger The question of how biological diversity influences the functioning of ecosystems has been of interest for decades and represents one of the grand challenge questions in ecology.  In terrestri

Visualizing Terrestrial and Aquatic Systems in 3D

Poster Number:  195 Presenter/Primary Author:  Judith Cushing Better visualization tools for environmental science is a well documented need, especially for use with the very large data sets produced by models that help predict ecological change.  The Vi
