A systems approach to modeling effects of climate and land-use change on prairie wetland ecosystems


This research effort is focused on developing integrated, process-based, systems models for prairie pothole wetlands to facilitate forecasts of how climate and land-use change will influence wetland processes, biota, and the delivery of multiple ecosystem services. Models will focus on predicting changes in hydrology, water chemistry, plant communities, invertebrates, amphibians, waterfowl, other wetland birds, and ecosystem services resulting from changing climatic and land-use conditions. We will utilize the extensive biotic and abiotic datasets available for the Missouri Coteau Wetland Ecosystem Observatory to parameterize, calibrate, and validate models. This research effort will allow us to address important scientific questions [...]
