in the Department of Geography

We study the structure and evolutionary dynamics of ecosystems at leaf to watershed scales, the integrative role of plant hydraulics on water, carbon, and nutrient cycling, and the behavior of organisms in response to climate-driven disturbances. The geographic elements of our work have emphasized carbon-water relations and biotic function over spatial continua rather than discrete boundaries. We are currently investigating a broad range of disturbance-related issues including drought, insect infestation, flooding, and climate change controls over ecosystem function, plant mortality, succession, and biogeochemical cycling.
