I had an absolute blast this week hanging in Vermont with the WaRM network. I got to hang with lots of old friends, new friends, looking at lots of pictures of beautiful mountain landscapes, enjoying beautiful mountain landscapes, and talking a ton of science about warming and species removal experiments in mountain ecosystems globally!
New paper out in Mycologia with collaborators from the Universidad Nacional de San Luis, Universidad del Magdalena, and the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba exploring arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and dark-septate endophyte colonization in grasses from across the Argentianian Puna.
NEE, NutNet, and goldfish!!
Spent Saturday at Cedar Creek Ecosystem Reserve measuring Net Ecosystem Exchange (NEE) within the Nutrient Network plots with Ashley & Evelyn. We determined that under high light conditions, our plant communities are fixing about 5 goldfish worth of carbon per day!!!!
