Widepsread and severe drought. Global die-off of forests. Increased scarcity of water for growing food and producing fibre. The ecological consequences of changes in climate and the hydrological cycle are staggering. We can better undestand these dynamics through the lens of plant water relations and the integrative roles of plant hydraulics and hydrology on water, carbon, and nutrient cycling. We are examining these processes at a variety of spatial scale, leaf to region, by combining plant phenotypic and genomic data with mathematical modeling. Here is a list of our current projects:

<> Collaborative research: Integrating plant hydraulics with climate change and hydrology to understand and predict responses to climate change (Funding source: National Science Foundation)

<> A systems analysis of plant growth promotion by the rhizosphere microbiome (Funding source: National Science Foundation)

<> Developing models of coupled carbon metabolim and hydraulics to understand and predict canopy and root dynamics at tower to regional scales

<> Improving hydrologic representation in earth systems modeling (Funding source: National Science Foundation)
