QUEST at the North American Forest Ecology Workshop

On June 20, Dr. Mary Beth Adams (USDA FS, Fernow Experimental Forest) presented a QUEST poster at the North American Forest Ecology Workshop. The workshop, hosted this year by Virginia Tech. in Roanoke, VA, brought together researchers from the US, Mexico, and Canada for five days to discuss the topic "Forest Ecology in a Managed Landscape." The attendees at the conference include researchers, academicians, and managers.

The poster that Dr. Adams presented was titled "QUEST: Quantifying Uncertainty in Ecosystem Studies." The poster discussed sites included in the QUEST research network, an introduction to ecosystem uncertainty, and preliminary results of current work estimating uncertainty in hydrologic fluxes. Mary Beth had many visitors to the poster who showed lots of interest in the topic.

You can view the QUEST poster as an Powerpoint file here.
