Biocomplexity of Frost-Boil Ecosystems
This NSF funded biocomplexity project seeks to understand the complex linkages between biogeochemical cycles, vegetation, disturbance, and climate across the full summer temperature gradient in the Arctic in order to better predict ecosystem responses to changing climate. The project examines the complexity associated with self-organization in frost-boil; complexity associated with interactions between biogeochemical cycles, cryoturbation, and vegetation; and biocomplexity across spatial-temporal scales. The web site includes the project proposal, research objectives, preliminary results, maps, photographs, datasets, and publications. This resource is part of the biocomplexity collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/biocomplexity/
