    Turner was elected to the United States National Academy of Sciences in 2004.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 2000
    Her work at Yellowstone gave insight into vegetation dynamics concerning changing disturbance regimes, vertebrate grazing, as well as her study in soil-microbe nutrient interactions which were looked into more thoroughly after Yellowstone's stand-replacing fire in 2000, Turner found that relatively large amounts of ammonium depletion occur during the first four years.
    More Details Hide Details Turner’s work at Yellowstone, which spans over a period of 20 years, has provided an insight unto the resiliency of ecosystems after major disturbances. ‘‘As we continue to deal with the effects of global warming, I think we are going to see an increasing frequency, severity, and range of disturbances, which will produce much more interaction,’’ Turner on the future of ecological disturbances. Turner’s current research at the University of Wisconsin includes: Aided by collaborative research with faculty in the University of Wisconsin and outside, as well as researchers, postdoctoral associates, and both graduate and undergraduate students. Although primarily a terrestrial ecology group Turners work also includes the interface between terrestrial and aquatic systems.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1989
    Turner and Romme began working in the park in summer of 1989 under challenging conditions.
    More Details Hide Details With no funding, they recruited volunteer labor. Friends, former students, and family members pitched in when they could. Even Turner’s mother spent her two weeks of vacation in the park measuring burned trees.
  • 1988
    In 1988 Turner sought to find a Landscape in which to study her model.
    More Details Hide Details After rejoining with fellow ecologist Bill Romme an expert in Yellowstone fire-history Turner was able to find the landscape she needed in the fire ridden Yellowstone, in which more than one-third of the park had been burned. That 1988 “summer of fire” made Yellowstone history. Early blazes, sparked in June by a combination of lightning and human activities, burned for several weeks without raising much concern. As the summer got hotter and drier, though, the situation quickly turned. In July, “we had active fires spread, but nothing that we hadn’t previously experienced,” recalls Roy Renkin, a Yellowstone biologist. “But then, here came August.... Then things started to really pick up and go.” One of Turner’s major projects in Yellowstone was examining the regrowth of lodgepole pine, the dominant tree species in the park.
  • 1987
    In 1987 after completion of her postdoctoral research Turner went on to become a staff scientist at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
    More Details Hide Details As a scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Turner began a project on the spatial distribution of land use in forests of the southern Appalachian Mountains. She is currently the Eugene P. Odum Professor of Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, her research interests include Causes and consequences of spatial heterogeneity in ecological systems; dynamics of natural disturbances and their effects on ecosystems; fire ecology; ecological modeling; ecological effects of land-use change; landscape ecology; forest ecosystem ecology. During her time at Oak Ridge her group developed simulations important in modeling key concepts in landscape ecology, amongst them predictions of species movement patterns, spread of disturbance, and the connectivity of habitats across landscapes.
  • 1986
    In 1986 Together with Colleague Frank Golley, Turner helped organize the first American meeting for landscape ecology.
