The interface between soil, vegetation and atmosphere shapes a liveable habitat, which is currently subject to climate-induced transformations. This session therefore invites studies with focus on exchange processes on that interface, bridging from micro to global scales, or elaborating on both natural and managed systems. As multiple interconnected biophysical and biogeochemical feedback processes characterize soil-vegetation-atmosphere interactions, it can be viewed in the eyes of a wide range of disciplines, from chemistry to microbiology, from rhizosphere to ecosystems, from diffusion to turbulent transport, and hence excellently connects the core BayCEER research fields.
We cordially invite researchers from various disciplines working on soil-vegetation-atmosphere interactions to join this session.

In recent years we experience an increase in large scale forest disturbances driven by abiotic as well as biotic agents. Besides the economic loss, especially the impact on biodiversity and forest persistence causes great concern. From single tree assessments to large-scale remote sensing we need to combine knowledge, sources, and methods to understand adaptive processes, their limits, and the role they play in forest disturbances to paint a picture of future forests.

The methods we use in our research are constantly changing with new technologies being developed or old ones being used for new applications. It is difficult to keep track of all the different possibilities we have to answer our questions about the environment. This session aims to have a look at the various methods we find within the BayCEER and invites anyone to present their method of choice for their particular research question - be it a particular instrument or a special way to use a method. We hope this will give rise to new ideas and new collaborations.
We specifically invite researches from ALL disciplines to share their approach and join this session.
In the annual BayCEER workshop all disciplines working in the focus area Ecology & the Environmental Sciences come together to exchange perspectives and ideas and foster networking between working groups. All chairs and researchers active in this field are invited to present their work:
