Join us as MCM collaborator Eric Sokol presents his work on Metacommunity mediated responses to ecosystem disturbance in the next webinar in the LTER Network Communications Office spring synthesis series. Registration information is provided below. All are welcome to attend!
Metacommunity mediated responses to ecosystem disturbance
May 10, 11 a.m. PDT / 12 noon MDT / 1 p.m. CDT / 2 p.m. EDT
Eric Sokol, National Ecological Observatory Network
Dr. Eric Sokol is a Research Scientist with the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) with a research affiliation at the Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR) and the University of Colorado Boulder. He started out studying aquatic insects in streams and rivers, using computer simulations and spatial statistics to understand how aquatic insect communities vary across watersheds. He has applied similar approaches to study microbe, diatom, zooplankton, macroinvertebrate, and fish communities in the Everglades (FCE LTER); soils, streams and ponds in Antarctica (MCM LTER); built ponds in Baltimore (BES LTER); and in synthesis work using publicly available LTER data.
