Major research themes and projects in the Department
Plant Carbon Allocation
How do plants allocate fixed C to respiration, defense, growth and storage, and how do those patterns change with climate, CO2, or disturbance?
|Lab Experiments||Field Experiments||Tracer Studies|
|Plant Allocation Group||TACAPE?|
Soil Organic Matter
What processes control the age of carbon in soils and what is the role of recycling in soil C stabilization and dynamics?
How does the identify of biota link to biogeochemical cycling?
|Jena Experiment||AquaDiva||Gas Metabolomics||Exploratories|
Landscape scale processes
How do processes operating at larger scales such as fire, land use or wind throw affect biogeochemical cycles ?
|Vegetation Stucture||Tanguro Flux||SAWI|
