Physiological and Ecosystem Ecology


Work in our lab generally falls in the broad domain of terrestrial ecology, with an emphasis on how the physiology and growth of plants interact with other components of ecological systems.

We also like to contribute to efforts to use fundamental understanding of ecological processes to solve a variety of modern anthropogenic problems.

Ongoing projects include work on ecophysiological and biogeochemical processes in seasonally dry environments, drivers of isotope fractionation in plants, and trait-genome relationships in loblolly pine drought tolerance.
