Assist NRCS to provide science-based data, results, and information to routinely inform conservation decisions affecting wetland ecosystems and the services they provide.
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.
