Curious: Natural Systems Change With Climate

It only takes a small difference in temperature for what might have been snow to fall instead as rain.  Subtle changes in many realms add up to big ones as the planet warms. 

These are the kinds of changes Lucas Silva studies in his work at the Soil Plant Atmosphere lab at the University of Oregon.  Understanding how natural processes work now can help us preserve or restore those processes as needed (and if possible). 

Dr. Silva is our guest in this month's edition of Curious: Research Meets Radio.  Listen to details of his work in the forests and beyond.
