SBC Researchers Named ESA Fellows
Two SBC investigators, Carla D'Antonio and Joshua Schimel, have been elected as fellows of the Ecological Society of America to recognize their exceptional scientific contributions. Both are professors in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology and work in SBC LTER watersheds. Schimel's interests are primarily with nutrient cycling and the patterns and mechanisms affecting nutrient transport to the coastal ocean, and the processing and release of kelp-derived nitrogen in sediments of intertidal beaches. D'Antonio's lab evaluates how plant communities and soil and plant nitrogen respond to high-intensity wildfire, and incorporates both ground sampling and hyperspectral imagery.
