Dr. Phil Manlick, Postdoctoral Research Scientist in the Biology Department at the University of New Mexico and his colleagues with the Sevilleta Long Term Ecological Research program have been studying small mammal foraging ecology in dryland ecosystems to understand how these animals will respond to future climates that are drier and more variable. Small mammals, […] Read More
Mikael Schlumpf, a research scientist in the Litvak Lab in the Biology Department at the University of New Mexico, explains long-term monitoring of ecosystem fluxes in drylands of the southwestern U.S.A. This work is important because drylands cover about 45 percent of land surface on Earth and strongly contribute to year-to-year variability in global […] Read More
