We study the structure and evolutionary dynamics of ecosystems at leaf to watershed scales, the integrative role of plant-water relations on water, carbon, and nutrient cycling, and the behavior of organisms in response to climate-driven disturbances. The novel geographic aspect of our work has been to quantify and explain 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, infestation, flooding, and climate change on ecosystem function, plant mortality, succession, and biogeochemical cycling.
