Year 1 EPSCoR Incubation Grants - Focus 1

Timeframe: 
2011 to 2012
  • Linking microbial processes to landscape-scale trace gas fluxes via hydrologic controls on soil chemistry in a forested Montana ecosystems (Dore (MSU), Gammons (MT-TECH), McDermott (MSU), McGlynn (MSU), Popp (U Hawaii-Manoa))
  • The role of antecedent conditions on snow physics and cold-season ecosystem gas flux (Adams (MSU), Miller (MSU), Dore (MSU), Stoy (MSU), McGlynn (MSU))
  • Water, carbon, and nitrogen dynamics in a floodplain riverscape: isotopic and sensor approaches to link biogeochemical cycles (Valett (UM), Payn (MSU), Brookshire (MSU), DeGrandpre (UM), Whalen (UNC))
  • The genomics of beetle-fungal symbiosis with massive implications for forest disturbance ecology (McCutcheon (UM), Six (UM), Cripps (MSU))
