Assistant Professor Anne Short Gianotti along with collaborators at The Nature Conservancy, UC Berkeley, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Integral Ecology Research Center, Trout Unlimited, McBain Associates, and Stanford University published a new paper in Bioscience. 

The paper is titled “High time for conservation: Adding the environment to the debate on marijuana liberalization” and draws attention to the need to address the environmental impacts of marijuana cultivation.  Using California as a case study, Short Gianotti and her collaborators examine the environmental impact of marijuana cultivation and identify opportunities and barriers for policies that would mitigate those impacts.

Pam Templer, Bruce Anderson and Anthony Fusco Publish Paper in Ecology

April 23rd, 2015 in 2015, Apr-15, Bruce Anderson, Faculty, Graduate students, Pub-15, Publications

Bruce Anderson

Bruce Anderson

Biology Associate Professor Pam Templer and Earth & Environment Professor Bruce Anderson and PhD Candidate Toby Fusco along with collaborators from Cornell University, UC Berkeley, Syracuse University, University of New Hampshire, and the USDA published a new paper in Ecology. The paper is titled “The promise and peril of intensive-site-based ecological research: .”

Toby Fusco

Toby Fusco

Given the continuing trend toward increasing concentration of field ecology research at intensive sites such as NSF’s NEON and LTER, this paper looked at the representativeness, and uniqueness, of one of the earliest intensive research sites in North America, the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest (HBEF).  By comparing its physical, chemical, hydrological, and ecological characteristics with other sites across the broader Northeast U.S., the paper sought to use the HBEF research experience to assess the benefits, and drawbacks, of intensive site based research and identify those processes for which such concentration of resources is best suited.
