Research Theme: The theme that binds my interests together is an interest in how the microenvironment of a plant influences its form and function. Recent projects have included stable isotopes in tree ring cellulose as indicators of plant water use and climate change, the effects of elevated CO2 and temperature extreme events (global change) on tree seedling physiology, and the genotype/phenotype interactions of conifers in common garden experiments.
