I just published a paper with Greg Asner examining how the transient geomorphic responses that watersheds have to changes in erosion pressure alter the organization of canopy foliar traits across Mt. Kinabalu. This work was facilitated though a collaboration between Greg Asner's GAO group and the government of the State of Sabah, Malaysia. I was excited to explore the awesome open source landscape analysis toolkit, LSD TopoTools, developed and maintained by its human masters from the Land Surface Dynamics group at the University of Edinburgh, and it was instrumental to my study. Kudos to them for all their hard work on it!
In addition to my work on the Kinabalu elevation transect, I had the opportunity to organize and conduct field sampling campaigns across the state in support of developing maps of canopy foliar characterisitcs from the airborne surveys that took place in 2016. These maps of foliar characteristics are supporting my work on Mt. Kinabalu as well as several others across the state of Sabah. Check out Elsa Ordway's work on edge dynamics.
