|Nina Buchmann, Marco Lehmann and Roland Werner attended the COST SIBAE 2013 Meeting - Challenges in the applications of stable isotopes across disciplines and scales at Wroclaw, Poland (14th-17th of May). See Marco's poster here >>.|
Congratulations (Dr.) Dennis Imer, (Dr.) Susanne Burri and (Dr.) Uli Prechsl to the successful defence of your thesis during the last days.
|New publication by Jin Cui et al. on Phenology and gross primary production of two dominant savanna woodland ecosystems in Southern Africa with contributions from Lutz Merbold is now available in the current issue of Remote Sensing of Environment.|
Newest findings of currently ongoing research in the grassland sciences group were presented during the open science conference on "Climate Extremes and Biogeochemical Cycles", the "EGU General Assembly" and the "Swiss Global Change Day".

|A recent article on the citizen-science project "Phaenonet", including comments from Werner Eugster has been published in ETH Life.|
New paper on A functional trait-based approach to understand community assembly and
diversity–productivity relationships over 7 years in experimental grasslands by Christiane Roscher et al. with contributions from Nina Buchmann was accepted in Perspectives in Plant Ecology, Evolution and Systematics.
We wish all our colleagues and friends a happy easter weekend.
New papers in Biogeosciences Discussions:
"Temporal and spatial variations of CO2, CH4 and N2O fluxes at three differently managed grasslands" by Dennis Imer et al. and
"Winter greenhouse gas emissions (CO2, CH4 and N2O) from a sub-alpine grassland" by Lutz Merbold et al.
|Nuria Altimir currently a Marie Curie Fellow at Laboratory of Functional Ecology and Global Change, Forestry Technological Centre of Catalonia, Solsona, Spain is visiting our group from February 4th until February 8th.|
The final conference of SIBAE is taking place in Wroclaw, Poland, during 14-19 May, 2013. Please register: here
||Dr. Janos Balogh, research associate at the Institute of Botany and Ecophysiology, Szent István University Gödöllő, Hungary joined our group as a guest scientist in November 2012 until June 2013.|
||Our most recent publication was accepted in Remote Sensing of Environment entitled "Evaluation of MODIS gross primary production for Africa using eddy covariance data" by Martin Sjöström et al. with contributions from Lutz Merbold.|
We wish all our colleagues and friends a happy new year!
Spring semester: Mondays 15:15-17:00 in LFW C5. Talks are in English, 30 min plus discussion. If two presentations: 20 min plus 10 min each.
