Congratulations to graduate students Abbey Griffin Wood and Erin Smyth, both of whom successfully defended their thesis research today. Pandemic-caused lab closures couldn't stop these two!
Abbey's thesis research was a mesocosm experiment comparing the effects of nutrient loading on biological contributions to elevation change in vegetated sods collected from natural and constructed marshes along the Fowl River in south Alabama.
Erin's thesis research was a field study comparing biological structure, organic matter decomposition, and carbon stocks in a natural and two constructed tidal marshes along the Fowl River in south Alabama.
Both of their studies are part of the CRIMSON project in the Cherry and Mortazavi Labs at UA.
