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 interacts with other components of ecological systems.

We also like to work on projects that attempt to productively apply this fundamental understanding to a variety of modern problems.

Ongoing projects include work on the fundamentals of leaf gas exchange, responses of southeastern forests to climate change, biogeochemical consequences of vegetation change in savanna ecosystems, drivers of isotope fractionation in plants, and modeling of plant isoscapes.
