Part 2 of 2: Droughts and deluges: Impacts on ecosystem structure and function

Feedback form is now closed.
This is part 2 of a 2-part, 180-minute session. Since the 1990’s, climate scientists have forecasted a future of more frequent droughts and deluges as the hydrological cycle intensifies. Yet our understanding of the impacts of these precipitation extremes remains largely anecdotal, and we lack a foundational perspective of their ecological consequences. This workshop will explore and synthesize knowledge of ecological responses to droughts and deluges from across the LTER network. We will compile observations gleaned from more than three decades of monitoring, as well as results from precipitation experiments focused on extremes. An ASM workshop is an ideal venue to begin synthesizing knowledge and data from across the LTER Network.
