Terrestrial 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 the fundamentals of leaf gas exchange, responses of southeastern forests to climate change, biogeochemical and ecohydrological processes in seasonally dry environments, drivers of isotope fractionation in plants, and modeling of plant isoscapes.

I am always looking for talented and enthusiastic graduate students.
