DRY FOREST DROUGHT EXPERIMENT GOES LIVE!

Thanks to German and Daniel’s hard work, we are finally installing the panels on our DOE-funded drought experiment.  The experiment is a full factorial of throughfall exclusion and fertilization, so that we can understand whether nutrient availability mediates responses to drought.  We are working in tree plantations at Horizontes, so that we can have replicated trees from diverse species that represent different plant functional types.  And congratulations to Kristen Becklund, who now goes by the name of Dr. Becklund after successfully defending her PhD.
