Research programmeEdit

One of the most pressing concerns in biology is whether we can predict how plants and ecosystems will respond to climate change. Plants (and particularly forests) are involved in complex feedbacks with Earth's climate system, such that the responses of plants to warmer, drier conditions in the coming decades could either slow or accelerate climate change. Our lab addresses this uncertainty by studying the physiological responses of trees and other plant groups to high temperatures, drought stress and changes in atmospheric CO2 concentration, with the goal of determining: 1) the mechanisms underpinning plant responses to global change at molecular and biochemical scales and 2) the implications of these responses for the larger community and ecosystem scales.
