Title: Nutrient responses to ecosystem disturbances from annual to multi-millennial timescales

Author: Buma, B.;

Date: 2014

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The Novus Network annual meeting was held at H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest in Oregon, USA, from 22 May to 24 May 2013. The topic was: ‘Nutrient responses to ecosystem disturbances from annual to multi-millennial timescales’. The 2013 workshop brought together 28 researchers from 21 institutions spread across three continents. The participants – 17 faculty members, five postdoctoral researchers and four graduate students – were chosen for variety in background, methods and research programs. All those involved focus on the questions of plant and ecosystem response to disturbance, but at a variety of temporal scales – ranging from one to million year spans. The network is open to any individual with an interest in ecosystem response to disturbance. The goals of the network are: (1) to unify research and records of ecosystem disturbance and response across multiple timescales, from initial seasonal responses to long-term, millennial dynamics and longer; (2) to synthesize current conceptual research in the area of ecosystem disturbance and biogeochemical response; (3) to propose new methodologies; and (4) to guide young scientists
