New publication based on fall monitoring data

Wenwen Liu and Steve Pennings just published a massive synthesis of many years of fall monitoring of Spartina alterniflora stem height and density at the GCE LTER site. The bottom line is that all the variation across zones, sites and years in Spartina alterniflora height and flowering status can be understood as resulting from a couple simple allometric rules.

THANK YOU to all the GCE Technicans and graduate students who helped collect the fall monitoring data over the past 20 years!
