Microbes could influence nitrogen cycle in an alpine meadow

Alpine meadows surrounded by snow-capped mountains remind me of idyllic images from the “Sound of Music.” When I see photos of these meadows, I have to turn down the Julie Andrews soundtrack playing in my head and resist the urge to spin around, arms outstretched. Photos of one such meadow in Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park drew me to poster #495 in the B13C “Cryospheric Biogeochemistry I” poster session.
