Databit Submissions for Fall 2009

Attention All,

The Fall 2009 issue of Databits is now open for submissions! I know that everyone has been busy and there are lots of topics and articles that each of us could contribute so I encourage everyone to submit something. Also, this is a great opportunity to reach out to some LTER affiliates for collaborations and have them contribute as well. Thanks in advance for the plethora of submissions that I know are forthcoming.

LTER outreach to the Genomics Standards Consortium
