  • Estimating uncertainty in ecosystem budget calculations 

    Yanai, Ruth D.; Battles, John J.; Richardson, Andrew D.; Blodgett, Corrie A.; Wood, Dustin M.; Rastetter, Edward B. (Springer, 2010-02-25)
    Ecosystem nutrient budgets often report values for pools and fluxes without any indication of uncertainty, which makes it difficult to evaluate the significance of findings or make comparisons across systems. We present ...
  • Recovery from disturbance requires resynchronization of ecosystem nutrient cycles 

    Rastetter, Edward B.; Yanai, Ruth D.; Thomas, R. Q.; Vadeboncoeur, M. A.; Fahey, Timothy J.; Fisk, M. C.; Kwiatkowski, Bonnie L.; Hamburg, S. P. (Ecological Society of America, 2013-04)
