About Us

Group photoWe are interested in how terrestrial ecosystems function, how they are being affected by human activities, and the consequeces of environmental change for both humans and the ecosystems that we depend on.

Work in the Terrestrial Ecosystem Ecology Lab spans a wide range of disciplines from soil biogeochemistry to microbial ecology to ecosystem science, and our projects vary in scale from plot-level studies investigating the effects of disturbance and global change on ecosystem processes to large-scale analyses of the biogoechemical cycles of carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus.
