National Ecological Observatory Network: An overview of flora protocols and data

“National Ecological Observatory Network: An overview of flora protocols and data”

A (Virtual) Lunchtime Lecture by Monika Kelley

In December we welcome Botanist Monika Kelley who will provide an overview of mission and structure of the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON). She will cover the methodologies and data products associated with various physical, chemical, and biological sampling protocols observing woody and herbaceous biota across the Observatory. Additionally, she will discuss some of the findings made at the NEON Domain 11 site within the Caddo-Lyndon B. Johnson National Grasslands and ways in which researchers are utilizing NEON data. This 1-hr seminar will include a short Q&A session after the lecture.

They are bent over, reaching their hands into the grasses and wildflowers, presumably examining something close to the ground. A bag or pack is around their waist.
