10th International Symposium on Wetland Biogeochemistry; Frontiers in Biogeochemistry

Smithsonian Institution 2006
The objective of the 10th anniversary of this international symposium is to reflect on the state of wetland biogeochemistry science. Recent years have witnessed a dramatic increase in our knowledge of microbial metabolic diversity that calls for revisiting the classical paradigms resource competition in soils and sediments. Discoveries have come from both traditional biogeochemical studies and novel molecular studies, and they demonstrate the power of integrating these fields. Many recent advances have important implications for the management of natural and created wetland ecosystems. The symposium welcomes research contributions from the full range of scales (molecular to ecosystem), applications (basic to applied), and ecosystems (mangroves to peatlands). In addition to the symposium theme, sessions will cover a wide variety of current topics in wetland biogeochemistry.

Topics include:
Novel pathways of anaerobic metabolism
Microbial respiration in anaerobic soils
Trace gas sources, sinks and emissions
Microbial ecology
Plant-Microbe interactions
Global change impacts on element cycling
Organic geochemistry in wetland soils
Toxic metal biogeochemistry
Nitrogen and phosphorus cycling
Biogeochemical indicators for assessment
