Research Feature #BESForestDay
What is #BESForestDay?
#BESForestDay is a day (Monday) during which we will feature research articles and projects broadly related to Forest Ecology. This initiative is designed to give researchers a greater voice to discuss, share and communicate their research to the public and wider community by leveraging our 3200+ twitter followers.
#BESForestDay will enable researchers to share their current projects, research or work and to engage with each other and those working on similar topics.
Who can participate?
Researchers, postdoc, PhD students, Master students, research groups whose research is broadly related to forest ecology.
Recent Research Features:
The contribution of photodegradation to litter decomposition in a temperate forest gap and understorey
New research article from Dr Qingwei Wang (@qingwei_wang) et al in New Phytologist (@NewPhyt): The contribution of photodegradation to litter decomposition in a temperate forest gap and understorey. Co-authors: @CanopySEE @MartaPieriste Read the article here: https://doi.org/10.1111/nph.17022 Sunlight provides indispensable energy for terrestrial biogeochemical processes. The role of photodegradation in decomposition, despite being well known inContinue reading “The contribution of photodegradation to litter decomposition in a temperate forest gap and understorey”
Dr Michał Bogdziewicz (@mic_bog)assistant professor at @UAM_Poznan working on: Climate change impacts on forest fecundity We use long-term monitoring programs, modelling and experiments to understand proximate and ultimate mechanisms driving mast seeding in trees. Once we understand that, we can start building a framework that will allow us to understand and predict climate change effectsContinue reading “Climate Change Impacts On Forest Fecundity”
Ximena Herrera – Alvarez (@XherreraA) PhD student at @UNavarra. Ecology of coarse woody debris (CWD), snags and leaf litter in different types of tropical forests along altitudinal gradients in the Ecuadorian Amazon The objective of this project is to understand the ecology and ecosystem services offered by snags, coarse woody debris (CWD) and leaf litterContinue reading “Forest Ecology In The Ecuadorian Amazon”
