Project Number: 6657-13000-009-05
Start Date: Oct 01, 2011
End Date: Dec 31, 2014
Participate in collaborative regional investigations to quantify wetlands ecosystem services across an alteration gradient in agricultural landscapes; interpret effects of conservation practices and programs, and the effectiveness (i.e., type, location, land treatment, design and/or management) of conservation practices on ecosystem services, and identify multiple-scale factors that influence the capacity for a wetland to provide nitrogen cycling ecosystem service. The Mitchell Ecology effort will be done via a grant focused on amphibian evaluations to consider potential connections with the conditions for and the level of denitrification.
