  • Gene Likens was awarded an honorary doctorate from Uppsala University in Uppsala, Sweden, in January to “celebrate his outstanding contributions to research in ecology and biogeochemistry.”
  • Emily Bernhardt was named an Ecological Society of America Fellow on March 1. She is one of 28 ESA members honored for their contributions to advancing ecological knowledge in academics, government, non-profit organizations and the broader society.
  • The Hubbard Brook website has a new subdomain for multimedia stories. Read the latest, "Data Collection Doesn’t Break for Winter: A Photo Essay," here: The subdomain will soon be accessible from the homepage; watch this space for more content in the coming months.
  • We are in the process of updating the dataset workflow to include the Environmental Data Initiative 'EMLassemblyline in R' package. We hope to release a number of new datasets by the next monthly newsletter—stay tuned! Hubbard Brook is an early adopter of this new software, and we hope that this will streamline the data submission workflow from data creators, information management, and on to NSF and publisher recognized data repositories. Contact with new Hubbard Brook data, and to make updates to existing datasets.
