Lab interests: We are broadly interested in understanding how and why plant carbon and water relations are impacted by environmental change, such as drought. We examine questions at multiple spatial and temporal scales within the context of global change. Here are some research topics that we explore:
Impact of coastal fog on plant water and carbon relations in a variety of ecosystems (forests, farms, urban habitat);
Response of plant community and productivity to water availability/drought in a montane meadow
Interactive effects of between coastal fog, riparian shading, and physical stream attributes on stream temperature in California salmonid habitat
We use a variety of research techniques, including field-based ecological studies, controlled manipulative experiments, and spatial analyses to address research questions.
Masters Students graduate! Sarah Gomes (May 2022) and Chloe Martin (August 2022). They each have positions that align with their interests and career goals.
2022 Summer REU students finish up their research projects.
