Exploring abrupt changes across scales in ecology

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
The theoretical basis for understanding abrupt changes in ecosystems has emerged, but the spatial and temporal scales of drivers and responses that abrupt changes occur across are uncertain. We will to build upon on a meta-analysis of abrupt change in ecology (published database link here!) to evaluate how abrupt changes are studied across LTER sites!

The specific goals of the workshop area: (1) Compare and contrast how we define abrupt change, (2) explore variability in drivers and responses of abrupt change, and (3) evaluate the spatial and temporal scales at which abrupt changes are observed across LTER sites!

I'm a PhD candidate at Florida International University and I'm working on understanding how different sources of carbon are processed along coastal wetland gradients. I'm planning to graduate in summer 2023 and currently looking for post-doc opportunities.
