From cycles to networks: biogeochemical and cultural transformations

In this talk I’ll discuss findings from research in the U.S. Midwest, Central Great Plains and the Caribbean to explore how a geographic perspective can provide insights into biogeochemical cycling of carbon, with a focus on above and belowground ecosystem response to disturbance. I will also discuss the role of disturbance in changing behaviors and organizational climate and policies and the power of social networks for advancing equity in the practice of science.
