Several new projects under way in the lab
The lab is embarking on new research projects this year, including linking C and N cycling in montane meadows, quantifying C pools and fluxes in Nevada meadows, exploring coupled C-N cycling under different forest management activities in northern California, and soon, the effects of drying out reservoirs (for meadow restoration) on C stocks. Exciting times ahead!
A hearty welcome to new lab members!
Jordin Jacobs has joined us to start her MS research in soil physical and chemical responses to piñon-juniper tree removal in the Great Basin.
Brian will be joining us to start his PhD in meadow soil carbon cycling this summer. Cheers to great things ahead!
Adam Greiner is doing an internship studying meadow soil CO2 flux responses to temperature before heading off to Whitman College!
Cordi's contributions to science have been recognized with two awards - including a UNR Graduate Student Association Research Grant and the Joan M. Comanor Scholarship in CABNR
Lab technician Stephanie Freund is more than a stellar engine behind our lab and field work... she is an artist, and her artwork was just selected by the ESA Biogeosciences section as their logo. Congrats, Steph!
At the 2016 Soil Science of Society America Meeting,
Ph.D. Student Cody Reed was awarded the best paper presentation in her session. This was not a student specific award, and recognizes her strong contribution to an invited orgnanized session. Congrats, Cody!
