Multiple members of the Cherry lab presented their research at the CERF virtual conference this week. Dr. Cherry (on behalf of former grad student Erin Smyth) and Taylor Ledford, a graduate student in the Mortazavi lab, presented back-to-back anchor talks in the Coastal Restoration: Challenges, Successes and Innovations Session. They presented on projects examining the recovery of ecosystem functions in constructed marshes, which were conducted as part of the CRIMSON project. Dr. Shelby Rinehart, a postdoc in the Cherry lab, and graduate students, Jake Dybiec and Emily Fromenthal, also presented posters on their CRIMSON research. Their posters examined burrowing crab impacts on marsh soils, sediment flux dynamics, and shifts in insect functional groups in natural and constructed marshes along the Fowl River in Alabama.
