The Terrestrial Ecosystems Journal Club




We host a bi-weekly journal club, spanning topics of interest across UC Berkeley's ESPM (ourenvironment.berkeley.edu) and LBNL's Earth and Environmental Science area (eesa.lbl.gov). See below for the papers discussed, and feel free to join if you are interested.
Current lead: Yao Zhang
Past leads: Remi Luo, Cecilia Chavana-Bryant
