Wetlands are an important component of the New England landscape, the Harvard Forest has its share; about 25% of the landscape is classified wetland or very poorly drained. Read how the The AmeriFlux instrument loaner program was used for a new pilot study at Harvard Forest.
Climate change is affecting the phenology of terrestrial ecosystems. In deciduous forests, phenology in leaf area index (LAI) is the primary driver of seasonal variation in the fraction of absorbed… More
What happens when the dominant tree species in a forest is killed off by an insect pest? Eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) is considered a foundation species with a range spanning… More
How, where, and why carbon (C) moves into and out of an ecosystem through time are long-standing questions in biogeochemistry. Here, we bring together hundreds of thousands of C-cycle observations… More
Aerodynamic canopy height (ha) is the effective height of vegetation canopy for its influence on atmospheric fluxes and is a key parameter of surface‐atmosphere coupling. However, methods to estimate ha… More
The phenological response of vegetation to ongoing climate change may have great implications for hydrological regimes in the eastern United States. However, there have been few studies that analyze its… More
