As part of the CZO, I will be examining processes that affect stable isotope (primarily carbon and nitrogen) compositions of soils, plants and small mammals across an elevation gradient, holding all other state factors constant. The goal is to better understand the effect of climate on these compositions, and its implications for carbon and nitrogen cycling within the ecosystem.
