With the DESN, RMBL scientists can pursue a number of specific questions, including how climate variability affects water budgets, ecosystem carbon fluxes, and species distributions; to test hypotheses concerning the physiological underpinnings of species hybrid zones; to identify how environmental parameters interact with social dynamics to influence marmot population demography, influence butterfly species invasions, and plant, amphibian, and stream/pond insect population dynamics.
