Integrating Advances in Molecular Studies of Denitrification With Biogeochemistry at Larger Scales - 2010

Dec. 13 - 17, 2010, San Francisco

The following experts in molecular methods for studying denitrification presented papers at this AGU session:
Åsa Helena Frostegård
Laurent Philippot
Jeremy Rich
Jenny Wang
Session Description
Molecular techniques for investigating nitrogen (N) cycling generally and denitrification in particular have been advancing rapidly. These methodological developments may provide valuable new understanding and perspectives to plot-level studies of N fluxes and to ecosystem models and N budgets. Presentations are solicited that employ one or more molecular-based approaches to the study of denitrification in soils, sediments, or aquatic environments, and that explain or propose how data on genes, transcripts, proteomes, or metabalomes inform larger scale biogeochemical understanding. Abstracts that integrate molecular and flux measurements and/or modeling at multiple scales are encouraged.
