Meet EcoPOD: Berkeley Lab's High-Tech Growing Chamber

8 days ago   |   By News Center

The air, soil, water, and microbes surrounding an individual plant represent one tiny fraction of an ecosystem. And yet, when you look closely, this little slice of organic and inorganic material is a universe unto itself, filled with thousands of chemicals and populated by billions of organisms conducting incalculable interactions every second.
Within such microcosms are answers to long-standing and large-scale questions such as how organisms across the planet are responding to climate change, how nutrients cycle through the food chain, and how we humans can engineer productive and...
