Hi all:
 
I hope everyone is having a great start to the semester! There are some great opportunities out there right now through the LTER Network Office, including the request for proposals for synthesis working groups and to nominate yourself or others for participation in NEON’s Technical Working Groups.
 
Big news, mark your calendars…we will officially launch our FCE 4.2 research during our virtual 2020 All Scientists Meeting scheduled for December 2 & 3 (from 3-5 p.m.) & 4 (from 4:30-6:30 p.m.). We will hear from our new working group leaders about current and forthcoming research (day 1), and have discussion break-outs to dig into the details (day 2). The meeting will be capped off by a student virtual poster jam where we can learn all about what our enormously productive student group has been up to!
 
More detail coming soon about the ASM.
 
Best wishes,
Ev and John

Global mangrove loss increases

Liza Goldberg, former FCE high school student with David Lagomasino at University of Maryland, and now undergraduate student at Stanford, led a study of satellite data on global mangrove loss. According to the data, mangrove loss has fallen dramatically in the past two decades, with human-caused mangrove destruction declining faster than from natural causes.
