In Print – Andrew Burton

The Faculty of 1000 (F1000) has selected a paper by Associate Professor Andrew Burton to include in its library of the top two percent of articles in biology and medicine.

The article, Chronic N Deposition Alters Root Respiration-Tissue N Relationship in Northern Hardwood Forests, appeared in the journal Global Change Biology, 2012. F1000 selects the most important articles in biology and medical research publications for its database. Articles are chosen by a peer-nominated group of the world’s leading scientists and clinicians, who then rate them and explain their importance.

Andrew Burton receives Best Paper Award

The Forest, Range and Wildland Division (S7) of the Soil Science Society of America prides itself on the quality of the papers that are presented in our division each year at the SSSA Annual Meeting.  We feel that it is important to recognize and reward the outstanding papers presented in the S7 Division each year.  To do this, members of the S7 Davison are asked to evaluate each of the oral papers and posters that are presented each year. Based on these evaluations, the best paper or poster in each session is selected.

Associate Professor Andrew Burton’s paper, “Response of Fine Root Respiration and Root N to Soil Warming in Hardwood Forests,” was recognized as the best paper in Session 125 on General Forest, Range, and Wildland Soils.
