Since our last post, a lot of things have happened. First, some news about people in the lab:
In August, Cathy Chamberlin joined the lab as a new PhD student. Cathy just submitted her first NSF Graduate Research Fellowship application.
In October, Xiaoli Dong joined the lab as a new post-doc. Xiaoli is working on spatial pattern formation in wetland landscapes, with a particular focus on the karst landscape of Big Cypress preserve.
Megan Fork spent the summer studying the effects of urban runoff on reservoirs, through a GO! Fellowship from Oak Ridge National Laboratory. A local newscast did a brief story about Megan, which you can see here.
Chelsea Clifford spent the summer characterizing the ecological structure of ditches throughout the coastal plain of North Carolina.
Anna Braswell spent the summer collecting sediment cores from wetlands along the NC coast.
Jim Heffernan visited the University of Wyoming, where collaborator and former sabbatical visitor Bob Hall played host. He also spent a few days at a SESYNC workshop, trying to understand innovation in urban socio-ecosystems.
I'll post other exciting news shortly.
