Laurel Hartley, assistant professor of integrative biology at the University of Colorado Denver, contributed to a new computer interactive on display at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History exhibition, "Dig It! The Secrets of Soil." The interactive game, which also is accessible on the museum Web site, teaches about greenhouse gas emissions from soil and was developed using real data and simulation models created by ecological researchers.
