Nutrient Cycling in Large River Ecosystems

Our understanding of nutrient cycling in large river ecosystems is currently limited.

In order to address these limitations, Drs. Jennifer Tank, University of Notre Dame, Michelle Baker, Utah State University, and Robert Hall, University of Wyoming, and Dr. Rosi developed a new method to measure nutrient uptake in a large river (Tank et al. 2008). These data are some of the first empirical measurements of nutrient uptake in a river and we are extending this research to include measurement of nutrient uptake in other large river ecosystems throughout the Western and Midwestern US.
