Dr. Cassandra Medvedeff

Post-doctoral Research Associate

Chapman university

As part of the Science Forum Series, Dr. Cassandra Medvedeff will be sharing her research about the Controls of Greenhouse Gas Production: Studies from the Florida Everglades to Minnesota Peatlands.

Wetlands are key ecosystems that regulate the global carbon cycle through both storing and emitting large quantities of carbon. These ecosystems are the largest natural source of the greenhouse gas methane; however, production of this gas varies considerably among wetland types. Thus, understanding controls of methane production in wetland ecosystems is crucial. This presentation will focus on different regulators of CH4 production in subtropical and boreal wetlands in the context of global climate change scenarios.
