  • Nutrient export to groundwater across a land use and historical climate gradient 

    Foster, Madison; Loecke, Terrance D.; Telegin, Anatole; Sikes, Benjamin; Burgin, Amy (2019)
    Groundwater inputs to streams are important to intermittent stream function and can be a source of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus. The amount of nutrients within groundwater are an important factor for downstream ...

    Pruitt, Abagael; Hanschu, Janaye; Overstreet, Emma; Loecke, Terrance D.; Zeglin, Lydia; Thomas, Samantha; Burgin, Amy (2019)
    How do stream order, land use, and stream position within the precipitation gradient across Kansas affect stream chemistry? Land use will drive changes in stream chemistry that are biologically driven (e.g., DOC, NO3-), ...
  • Soil Oxygen Dynamics: Patterns and Lessons from Six Years of High Frequency Monitoring 

    Loecke, Terrance D.; Burgin, Amy J.; Franz, Trenton; Smyth, Ashley (2019)
    Soil oxygen (O2) is a fundamental control on terrestrial biogeochemical cycles including processes producing and consuming greenhouse gases (GHG), yet it is rarely measured. Instead, soil O2 is assumed to be proportional ...

    Global rice cultivation is estimated to account for 2.5% of current anthropogenic warming because of emissions of methane (CH4), a short-lived greenhouse gas. This estimate assumes a widespread prevalence of continuous ...
  • Seasonal Salinization Decreases Spatial Heterogeneity of Sulfate Reducing Activity 

    Schoepfer, Valerie A.; Burgin, Amy J.; Loecke, Terrance D.; Helton, Ashley M. (MDPI, 2019-04-02)
    Evidence of sulfate input and reduction in coastal freshwater wetlands is often visible in the black iron monosulfide (FeS) complexes that form in iron rich reducing sediments. Using a modified Indicator of Reduction in ...
  • Reply to Wassmann et al.: More data at high sampling intensity from medium- and intense-intermittently flooded rice farms is crucial 

    Kritee, Kritee; Rudek, Joseph; Proville, Jeremy; Adhya, Tapan K.; Loecke, Terrance D.; Nair, Drishya; Ahuja, Richie; Hamburg, Steven P. (National Academy of Sciences, 2019-01-22)
    Here, we briefly respond to critique of our study (1) by Wassmann et al. (2). A detailed response to their letter is available online (edf.org/riceN2O).
  • The complete mitogenome of a South African cryptic species of tadpole shrimp within the Triops granarius (Lucas, 1864) species group 

    Gan, Han Ming; Wasserman, Ryan John; Dalu, Tatenda; Rogers, D. Christopher (Taylor & Francis Open Access, 2019-01-22)
    The complete mitochondrial genome of a cryptic species of tadpole shrimp from South Africa (Accession Number: MG770893) was recovered by low coverage shotgun sequencing. The mitogenome consists of 15,216 bp with a GC content ...
  • Synchrony is more than its top-down and climatic parts: Interacting Moran effects on phytoplankton in British seas 

    Sheppard, Lawrence W.; Defriez, Emma J.; Reid, Philip C.; Reuman, Daniel C. (Public Library of Science, 2019-03-28)
    Large-scale spatial synchrony is ubiquitous in ecology. We examined 56 years of data representing chlorophyll density in 26 areas in British seas monitored by the Continuous Plankton Recorder survey. We used wavelet methods ...
  • Self‐organizing cicada choruses respond to the local sound and light environment 

    Sheppard, Lawrence W.; Mechtley, Brandon; Walter, Jonathan A.; Reuman, Daniel C. (Wiley Open Access, 2020-04-20)
    1. Periodical cicadas exhibit an extraordinary capacity for self‐organizing spatially synchronous breeding behavior. The regular emergence of periodical cicada broods across the United States is a phenomenon of longstanding ...
  • Effects of the soil microbiome on the demography of two annual prairie plants 

    Reynolds, Hannah S.; Wagner, Rebekah; Wang, Guangzhou; Burrill, Haley M.; Bever, James D.; Alexander, Helen M. (Wiley Open Access, 2020-06-14)
    1. Both mutualistic and pathogenic soil microbes are known to play important roles in shaping the fitness of plants, likely affecting plants at different life cycle stages. 2. In order to investigate the differential ...
  • Abiotic and biotic context dependency of perennial crop yield 

    McKenna, Thomas P.; Koziol, Liz; Bever, James D.; Crews, Timothy E.; Sikes, Benjamin A. (Public Library of Science, 2020-06-26)
    Perennial crops in agricultural systems can increase sustainability and the magnitude of ecosystem services, but yield may depend upon biotic context, including soil mutualists, pathogens and cropping diversity. These ...
  • Frequent fire slows microbial decomposition of newly deposited fine fuels in a pyrophilic ecosystem 

    Hopkins, Jacob R,; Huffman, Jean M.; Platt, William J.; Sikes, Benjamin A. (Springer Nature, 2020-07-22)
    Frequent fires maintain nearly 50% of terrestrial ecosystems, and drive ecosystem changes that govern future fires. Since fires are dependent on available plant or fine fuels, ecosystem processes that alter fine fuel loads ...
  • Leaf litter identity alters the timing of lotic nutrient dynamics 

    Robbins, Caleb J.; Matthaues, William J.; Cook, Stephen C.; Housley, Lauren M.; Robinson, Sarah E.; Garbarino, Matt A.; LeBrun, Erick S.; Raut, Swastika; Tseng, Chi-Yen; King, Ryan S. (Wiley, 2019-09-30)
