Our lab focuses on understanding the complex relationships between plants and their environment and the evolution of plant adaptations.  We employ techniques from physiological and evolutionary ecology to investigate leaf and xylem 
adaptations, whole plant co-ordination of function, the effects of habitat alteration and climate change, plant responses to 
extreme events and environments, and the relative contributions of genotype and environment to physiological variation within and among populations.  We utilize the extensive collections and natural areas of The Holden Arboretum as well as field sites at the Sevilleta Long Term Ecological Research site for our research.
