        ****Just a reminder that the coming week's Conservation Biology
Discussion Group will be held on Monday instead of Wednesday.
        Bring along your lunch and join us on Monday, Nov. 10th from
12:15-1:15PM in Room 105 Aiken when Jill Bubier will speak about "The Role
of Northern Ecosystems in Global Climate Change". Jill will outline the
issues surrounding the "missing sink" of carbon in global carbon budgets,
and the importance of mid-high latitude ecosystems in discussions of
global climate change.  She will present results from the Boreal-Ecosystem
Atmosphere Study (BOREAS), a joint U.S.-Canadian experiment to understand
exchanges of carbon, water and energy between the boreal biome and the
atmosphere.  In particular, Jill will focus on  wetlands to examine the
important processes that might help us predict the effects of changing
temperature and precipitation patterns on high latitude ecosystems and
the subsequent feeback effects on global climate.
        Jill is a graduate of the UVM Field Naturalist Program who
received her  Ph.D. from McGill University on the biogeochemistry
of peatlands. She is currently a research associate for the Complex
Systems Research Center of the  Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans,
and Space at the University of New Hampshire.
