DRAGNet at Sapelo

The GCE is participating in DRAGNet, a global, distributed experiment that crosses disturbance treatments with nutrient additions to see how ecosystems respond to severe disturbances. We're actually roto-tilling plots in the field three years in a row to implement the disturbance! The experiment fits in well with the GCE emphasis on studying disturbance over the current funding cycle.
