Often tucked away in the corner of most ecosystem box models, animals are typically viewed as minor players in the macro-movements of carbon and nutrients in ecosystems. However, in recent years, an increasing number of studies, many from the LTER network, have demonstrated the functional role of the movement and distribution of animals in mediating nutrient and carbon cycles in ecosystems. In the spirit of Next Generation Synthesis, this workshop will focus on formalizing the role animals and their movements play in cycling nutrients through ecosystems.
