PROF LAWREN SACK'S PAPER SELECTED AND FEATURED BY FACULTY OF 1000

A recent paper by Lawren Sack and postdoctoral fellow Dr. Molly Cavaleri (now Assistant Professor at Michigan Tech University) was selected by Faculty of 1000 as one of the top 2% of all published articles in the biological and medical sciences. The paper, published in Ecology, "Comparative water use of native and invasive plants at multiple scales: a global meta-analysis", shows the importance of plant species in determining the total water use of forests and ecosystems, and points to the increasing impacts of invasive species on water use given climate change. This is the third paper so far by Lawren Sack to be recognized in this way by Faculty of 1000.
