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,
*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
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.
