Research at Cedar Creek
Research at Cedar Creek covers a diverse range of topics, with projects that vary in size, scope, duration, methodology and taxonomic focus. From undergraduate projects on soil processes, drought impacts, aquatic microbes and pollinator behavior to large-scale, long-term work on ecosystem dynamics through the National Science Foundation's Long-Term Ecological Research network, our scientists are committed to understanding the world we live in.
Many of the experiments at Cedar Creek consider the long-term consequences of human-driven environmental change. These include ecosystem responses to biodiversity loss, nitrogen deposition, elevated carbon dioxide, warming and changes in precipitation, exotic species invasions, habitat fragmentation, and fire regimes.
