Second California LTER Graduate Student Symposium at UCSB
Graduate students from SBC, MCR and CCE met in February 2011 at the Marine Science Institute of UCSB for the second California LTER Graduate Student Symposium. The first event was held in 2009 at Scripps Institute of Oceanography. This year's event, hosted by the SBC and MCR LTERs, was organized jointly by student representatives Kyle Cavanaugh (SBC) and Sammie Davis (MCR). Student participants represented the University of California campuses at Santa Barbara and San Diego, (UCSB, UCSD) and the California State University at Northridge (CSUN). This all-day event featured more than 20 presentations of student research in talks and posters. Topics ranged from consquences of urban runoff for shore communities, chemical and microbial processes, population responses to resource limitations and predation, and the relationships between physical forcing and ecosystem structure. Oral presentations were recorded and can be viewed at the SBC web site, through the education page (http://sbc.lternet.edu/education).
