The interlinked biological processes that drive carbon cycling in Everglades coastal wetlands are poorly understood but critically important for predicting responses to sea-level rise, climate change, and outcomes of Everglades restoration. Speaker will discuss efforts to quantify the effects of multiple drivers on C cycling in Florida Coastal Everglades ecosystems and the development of biogeochemical models for use in water management strategies.
