  • a survey of arts and humanities programs at 21 LTER sites, published in the Journal of Environmental Studies and Sciences;
  • a paper in Fungal Ecology looking at the ways Harvard Forest LTER’s chronic nitrogen addition plots have restructured soil fungal communities;
  • a multi-site experiment exploring the mechanisms relating nutrient enrichment with changes in productivity, diversity, and plant community structure in grasslands, published in Ecology Letters;
  • a Landscape Ecology paper, out of the Jornada Basin LTER, exploring the role of soil type in determining where wildfires start and how big they get;
  • an article in Ecosphere examining the use of scenarios in working with forest stakeholders and land managers.
