We held the last workshop of the Novus RCN from Sept. 28-29! Thirty participants from seven nations gathered at Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in New Hampshire to discuss past progress and new directions in biogeochemical response to disturbance. The format of the meeting was short presentations, a poster session, and of course a field trip. Highlights included the Ice Storm Experiment from Lindsey Rusted, long-term vegetation monitoring from John Battles, and the watershed experiments and Mirror Lake from Gene Likens. Although this is the last Novus workshop, the blog will stay active, we have one more postdoc, and the research efforts will continue on, so stay tuned!
