Effect of local variability in erosional resistance on large‐scale morphodynamic response of salt marshes to wind waves and extreme events

Poster Number:  298 Presenter/Primary Author:  Nicoletta Leonardi The presence of natural heterogeneities is an integral characteristic of salt marshes and needs to be account for, as local feedbacks could influence the large scale morph

Seasonality in the use of heterogeneous terrain by a territorial habitat specialist, the American pika

Poster Number:  291 Presenter/Primary Author:  Aidan Beers Climate change is likely to affect mountainous areas unevenly due to the complex interactions between topography, vegetation, and the accumulation of snow and ice.

Regional shifts in phytoplankton abundance, structure, and phenology along the Western Antarctic Peninsula

Poster Number:  263 Presenter/Primary Author:  Maria Kavanaugh The western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP) is experiencing dramatic climate change.

Using large predator fish body condition to predict alligator body condition in response to hydrologic seasonality in the Florida Coastal Everglades

Poster Number:  249 Presenter/Primary Author:  Virginia Fourqurean The linkages between environmental drivers and top mesopredators are often hard to discern because predators are hard to track.

Knowledge, Learning, Analysis System (KLAS)

Poster Number:  242 Presenter/Primary Author:  Geovany Ramirez The goal of KLAS is to develop a new scientific approach that takes advantage of the data deluge, defined here as both legacy data and new data acquired from environmental and biotic sensors, compl
