Dear committee,

I would like to post an announcement of an application to a workshop on 
Biogeochemical responses to ecosystem disturbances from decadal to 
millennial time-scales (announcement paste below).
I believe that your members will be interested to attend to this. Even 
if it is not a job /per se/, that can be a very good opportunity to meet 
people, start collaborations, and acquire and analyse data with experts 
of different fields!
Let me know your decision.

With my very best wishes,
Merry Christmas!

*Novus Workshop 3 *: Biogeochemical responses to ecosystem disturbances 
from decadal to millennial time scales

Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

May 16-21, 2016

The Novus Research Coordination Network focuses on integrating long and 
short timescale approaches to understanding ecosystem response to 
disturbance. We are organizing a workshop to bring together researchers 
on this topic, and we invite you now to apply for a limited number of 
available openings to participate in the workshop. The deadline for 
application**is*Friday 22, January 2016.*

The workshop format is an active technique exchange among 
paleoecologists, dendrochronologists, and neo-ecosystem ecologists in an 
oak-savanna environment.

These oak ecosystems are important because of their vastness, diversity, 
and many ecological and economical values. However, they are 
highly-threatened due partly to historical fire suppression. Although 
prescribed fires are used to help regenerate and restore the oak-savanna 
ecosystem, the past fire regime of this area is not well-understood, nor 
is the role of nutrient and carbon cycling. The workshop theme is about 
the fire regimes of the oak-savanna ecosystem and the biogeochemical 
consequences at short and long temporal scales.

The workshop will be an entire week, with three days in the _field_, at 
Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve, and three days in _labs_ at the 
University of Minnesota processing samples.
