Check out our newest documentary video, Plants & Pests, part of SESYNC's Research in Action video series.
This month Dr. Ken Conca will join the SESYNC team as a fellow on sabbatical from his home institution, American University’s School of International Service, where he is a professor of International Relations. He will spend much of his time on an independent sabbatical project that investigates climate change, water, and the social construction of risk.
Ecological restoration is seen as a key tool for building back biodiversity and resilience in ecosystems that have been disturbed. But new research found that even if complete ecosystem recovery is reached, disturbed ecosystems typically incur decades of lost biodiversity and ecosystem function such as carbon and nitrogen cycling.
