Open Meeting - HYBRID

 

Room:  1.413

 

Session Abstract: 

The Arctic Underground Network brings together an interdisciplinary team of biologists and ecologists to synthesize what is known about root traits and rhizosphere processes in cold ecosystems - tundra, boreal forest, and peatlands. At ASSW2022 we will hold our third workshop during the ASSW Science Meeting. Our efforts focus on four thematic activities:

  1. Synthesize mechanisms by examining the effects of soil warming experiments on root and rhizosphere processes.
  2. Explore linkages between leaf and root traits for extrapolation and scaling of ecological processes in cold ecosystems.
  3. Add cold soil roots and their symbionts to a “worldwide root economic spectrum,” filling in a data gap in global plant traits databases and model parameters.
  4. Integrate traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) of plants and belowground properties into our understanding of Arctic ecosystem change and educate scientists on indigenous perspectives.
