Many scientists study how soil and plants help regulate Earth's climate, and that work is becoming more important as humans alter the climate system. Scientists are looking for ways to predict how global shifts in temperature and precipitation may alter the Earth's biogeochemical cycles in the future. For this Science on Tap, Sharon Billings, KU associate professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, will explore how soil and plants regulate Earth's climate and how humans are changing the balance. Science on Tap is a science cafe hosted by Free State Brewing, 636 Massachusetts St. Guest moderators introduce a topic and then guide discussion with the audience. Bring your curiosity and your questions.
