Jianwei Li and Lisa Tiemann both are attending the American Geophysical Union meeting December 13-17 in San Francisco to present their posters on soil warming and boreal soil CO2 release (Jianwei) and N2O production and consumption in grassland soils (Lisa). Both works explore the influence of warming on enzyme-substrate pairings in soils.

Ford Ballantyne, Sharon Billings, Lisa Tiemann, and Jianwei Li all attended the 2010 meeting of the Ecological Society of America in Pittsburgh August 2-6. Ford's talk, "A theoretical framework for linking extracellular enzymes to rates of SOM decomposition and CO2 production," described a plan of attack for understanding how microbial populations and communities strategize to maximize biomass production in varying substrate landscapes. Sharon's talk, "Soil warming and N2O production and consumption: Differential enzymatic responses?" revealed seasonal changes in denitrifying soil communities' responses to incubation temperature. Lisa's poster, "Linking gene regulation of nitrogen metabolism to ...
