Stressed Out Soils: A Conversation with Jane Lucas

May 11, 2023

6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Location: Online

Join Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies for a science conversation featuring Jane Lucas, an ecologist researching threats facing soils, and how they can be understood and managed in the face of global change. This will include insight into her research on microbial ecology, soil food webs, and how antibiotic introductions into our soil environments (via livestock) shapes microbiomes, antibiotic resistance, and soil's ability to store water and carbon. She will also discuss Stressed Out Soils, a large-scale experimental project that is the first to look at how drought, warming, fungicides, antibacterials, and pesticides interact to shape soil health
